1883 - Rathaus, Vienna, Austria

The Rathaus, or town or city hall 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. Renovations completed in 2000 included re-opening the neo-baroque Salon Ziehrer and the redesigned Lanner-Lehar Hall with wall and ceiling murals by German Trompe-l’Å“il artist Rainer Maria Latzke.
