Vienna, Austria – City Hall

From one of my favorite little cities in the world…Vienna, Austria…here is a photo of the City Hall (Rathaus) from a distance.  I have not been here in years and I miss it much.  The Ringstrasse (city loop) is one great place to catch the local trains around the city.  So many great spots to see and enjoy!  At certain times of the year…right in front of the Rathaus you can find a market or shops!  Gotta love city life!

Some info from the web:  The Rathaus is a building in Vienna which serves as the seat both of the mayor and city council of the city of Vienna. The town hall also serves, in personal union, as Governor and Assembly (Landtag) of the State of Vienna, a state with the Austrian federal system. he Rathaus was designed by Friedrich von Schmidt in the Gothic style, and built between 1872 and 1883. On the top of the tower is the Rathausmann, one of the symbols of Vienna. Facing the Rathaus is a large park, the Rathauspark. The Rathaus also accommodates the historic ‘Wiener Rathauskeller’ restaurant. The traditional restaurant consists of several baroque halls, offering small traditional Viennese delicacies to grand gala buffets. Recently finished renovations (2000) include the re-opening of the neo-baroque Salon Ziehrer and the redesigned Lanner-Lehar Hall with wall and ceiling murals by GermanTrompe-l’œil artist Rainer Maria Latzke.
