Overview

The new town hall was built from 1872-1883 to replace the old town hall in Wipplingerstra├če and is neo-Gothic in style. A huge central tower, topped by the three-meter-high statue of a knight in armor , dominates the front facade. Known affectionately as the Rathausmann, it was designed by Franz Gastell. The facade's most attractive feature is its lofty loggia, with its delicate tracery and curved balconies. The building has seven courtyards where concerts, markets and ice skating rinks are often held. At the top of the first of the two grand staircases is the Festsaal, a ceremonial hall that stretches the length of the building.
