Attend a film festival, a winter market, or a food festival at Rathausplatz. This town square between the town hall and theater, filled with monuments and statues of the city's former mayors, is a hub for social and cultural events. Easily accessible via public transportation, the square has a small grassy area with many benches and trees, and a well maintained children's play area. Events held on the square vary seasonally, so be sure to check out what's happening on their website during your visit.

Nice place and area to visit, but I do think this is more interesting in late autumn towards winter when the Christmas market is set.

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!
