  • Nice square centraly located with the rathaus and the park as the main attractions. Nice architecture around.  more »
  • in winter there's a large ice rink to go skating and lots of stalls with food, drink and Vienna souvenirs.  more »
  • One of the main attractions in Vienna, where a lot of festivals and events happen, right across the national theatre. The building itself is massive but beautiful, befit of a former empire. All windows have flowers and we are talking about a huge number of windows here.
  • I had dinner at one of the restaurants on a Saturday evening. It was so busy and the food options were endless! It was affordable as well, about 8-15 € per plate. It was great! I loved it. It just so happened that the Film Festival was showing The Third Man that evening. I got there at 19:30 and found plenty of seating. If you plan on attending a show, it does fill up so get there at least a half hour before the show. It was wonderful!
