The Rathaus (Town Hall) is an official building of the city of Vienna which serves as both the seat of the City Council and the Landtag of the State of Vienna, Administrative Division of the Republic of Austria.
It was designed by architect Friedrich von Schmidt in a neo-Gothic style inspired by the Brussels City Hall. It was built between 1872 and 1883 during the period of construction of the great monuments of the Ring. At the top of its main tower, the Rathausmann, one of the symbols of the city, rises to 97.9 meters. The building has its own park, the Rathauspark, and is located opposite the Burgtheater (Vienna City Theater). The central balcony was specifically built for Adolf Hitler who gave a speech on April 9, 1938, a few days after the Anschluss. © Photo of Emmanuel Buchot
