I have perhaps had my view of this skewed a little, as my experience of the Rathaus was when I went to The Concordia Ball. So I saw it in its finest splendour. However, it is lovely and makes a lot of our town halls look very drab indeed.

The Rathaus in Vienna is a magnificent neo-Gothic building with high spires and a landmark from much of the central Vienna area, especially the gardens in the vicinity of the Hofburg palace complex.

Unfortunately, the Rathaus was under extensive restoration when we visited and the lower half of the building was almost entirely behind scaffolding when we visited in early May, although the park in front is still quite pleasant. We also were there at a time when we could not tour the interior, and so cannot adequately rate the Rathaus.

It is worthwhile checking the status of the restoration work in the near future if contemplating making a specific trip to visit the Rathaus.

We went on a date where they were celebrating some football game win or something and it was full of happy people. The building is beautiful so I bet it is also worth a visit even when there is no special celebration

Jaw dropping all around the city. I walked miles just enjoying thrill after architectural thrill. The city hall is a marvel, but you either need a wide angle lens or go a long way back to get a good photo. The downside with the latter you get shedloads of people too.
