Rathaus - Rathaus information and pictures

Vienna City Hall (Rathaus) is the seat of the mayor of Vienna and the City Council. Rathaus was designed by Friedrich von Schmidt in neo-Gothic style and was built, between 1872 and 1883.

The central tower measures 98m (321 ft) and on the top of it is the “Iron Knight of City Hall” (Eiserner Rathausmann) who measures almost 6m (20 ft). This knight on top of the central tower is one of the symbols of Vienna.
