We were at PPG PLace to see the 16 Santas from Around the World and just loved all of them.
Due to our ethnic background, we lived the Santa from Poland and the St. Nicholas from Germany. All of them were wonderful and the explanations were great. Loved the hundreds of Gingerbread Houses and the big Christmas tree and the train We were there on 12/27/13.
All of this was FREE. We paid only ten dollars to park in the parking garage. And we also got to see the big outside Christmas tree in the middle of the ice rink and watched the skaters.
Just loved this so much. Want to bring the grandkids next year and come before Christmas and shop at the outside portable shops (shops were down when we came). Perfect for all ages.

The ice skating rink, winter garden, holiday village and central location make this a great stop with family during the holidays. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there this year and look forward to going again!

The whole area around PPG Place interesting. The architecture is very cool and the reflection of the glass gives it a great appearance. It's awesome during the holidays, you should see it.

This building is home to several businesses located in Pittsburgh, but it was originally commissioned, built and owned by PPG (Pittsburgh Plate Glass, Pittsburgh Paint & Glass, whatever...), a Fortune 200 company whose corporate headquarters still command the top floors. It is truly beautiful, but not much of a destination in & of itself (other than for architecture buffs). However, the square in the middle of the complex is a lovely place in all seasons... in the winter it has an ice skating venue where you can rent & skate around the "holiday tree", and during the other seasons it is much like a plaza in Europe, lots of tables for eating, resting & people watching. Sometimes you can find entertainment or political speakers holding court. It is very near Market Square, a great place to buy carry-out (or dine in) food, and venue for lunch time entertainment in the warmer months.

We did not go here. We just viewed the building from across the water but the architecture is absolutely wonderful with this building. You must take a look at this when you visit Pitt.
