Worth checking out due to the impressive architecture. Whilst we went a film festival was on. Sadly didn't see much due to it being closed on the day we went.

Most of the year the Rathausplatz is the centre of diverse events. Steirerdorf, Filmfest etc - there is always something to see there. Rest of the year it is one of the most beautiful houses of the world and next to Parliament, Votivkirche, Burgtheater etc
