Though the day had been very wet, it cleared up sufficiently by the evening for us to enjoy the outdoor screening at the Vienna Film Festival of a performance of Puccini's opera "Tosca". Wonderful staging in front of the Rathaus, and a highlight of our Vienna stay.

The building is beautiful and best of all they had a movie festival presentation during the month of August which was supported by a food court from all over the world which was next to beer gardens, which completed the day after lots of walking around. Really nice experience

Town Hall building is in Gothic style. Film Festival 2014 is being held until 31st August 2014. Amazing atmosphere in the evening with lots of different cuisines and drinks. The building itself is lovely to visit.

If only all working government buildings could look like this. Certainly worth a walk by. If you can, try to get a tour. Only thing that was unimpressive was the "plaza." It was just an open space with dilapidated tile/concrete and potholes. It isn't in keeping with the building itself.

We visited Rathaus at night when a free film festival was being presented featuring the Vienna Orchestra performing works of Wagner. The music was wonderful and the Rathaus lighted at night was breath taking. There was also a street fair where food and drink was available just behind Rathaus.

There is an ongoing festival, later in the evening they display operas, a great variety of restaurants and place to eat. Very casual, and family friendly. Reminds me of American summer feasts. The city hall building itself is amazing built in the late 19th century.

The tour is free. It is well worth it to stop by here at one in the afternoon to check out the free audio tour. The rooms on display are nice to see.

The building itself is impressive but the best part is that during Summer there is an open air film festival broadcasting concerts and operas in a giga screen right outside the townhall. Even if you are not a concert lover (like myself), if you spend your evening you really feel the vibes of this city! Bonus --> Many food kiosks... More

The Rathaus (Town Hall) is a building in Vienna which serves as the seat both of the mayor and city council of the city of Vienna. Quick walk-by is recommended!

Fabulous building, fantastic architecture. If you want to take a magnificent photo go there after sunset. It is near other great buildings.
