Alte Rathaus, Vienna

Vienna, Austria

Alte Rathaus is German for Old Town or City Hall (L'ancien hôtel de ville). This one has loud music and a large ice skating rink in front during the winter.

  1. Charming. Majestic! I love that you've captured it being enjoyed - so to speak...and alive! Sometimes those old buildings, while beautiful, can look so sleepy and almost forgotten. Love this!

  4. Entrancing image. The foreground is nearly as facsinating as the beautiful architecture. As always, I do love your images.

  5. Wonderful, James. Vienna was one of the places I missed when we cruised the Rhine and Danube in November. I had a dreadful bronchial problem, fortunately not contagious.

  6. Nice shot, love the old building - but please, no more snow. After a long grey few months we finally have lovely sunny spring weather in the UK. No reminders of winter!

  10. Stunning night photo. Perhaps it is the colors of the lights, or the reflection of light on snow. Well done.

  11. Une très belle photo qui donne un air magique à ce Vieil Hôtel de Ville viennois. On en oublie la neige et la gadoue aux pieds !
