We didn't actually see what the inside had to offer just enjoyed the detail of the stone carved building. The scale is crazy, such a huge building and the detailing is stunning. Great building to see at night when its all lit up.

Walked around the building complex admiring the great architecture. Saw it first time from the Ring Tram, and then later passed it by foot

The town hall is worth a visit and is gorgeous inside and out. When we went there was an ice rink and mini winter market in front of it which was really nice.

This town hall is well worth a visit - and a look from Rathauspark, as it looks gorgeous. We visited near Easter so a small Easter market was taking place.

Don't hesitate to go inside and to wander around the huge reception rooms in the upper floors. A stunning place.

watching over the city from afar of the Hofburg palace and the park, you come to think another palace is around. while getting closer you see the aim might be different.

The whole outside was wrapped in scaffolding and we didn't go inside. Didn't read anything about it before our visit...

The Rathaus is impressive to see from the outside (and from its courtyard) but I happen to visit on a day when they had their FREE guided tour. They only have one tour per day and only 3 days per week so it is not super easily accessible but if you have a spot in your itinerary for it, it... More

Easy to get by subway, very beautiful place. There is an event "Vienna Ice World" held during winter time. If you love ice-skating, don't miss it. A wonderful place for ice-skating.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
