The Altes Rathaus or Old Town Hall dates from the 13th Century but was extended and given various face lifts over the centuries. Today it is home to the Museum of the Austrian Resistance Movement, a fascinating collection of documents, personal testimonies and photographs intended as a warning to future generations of the dangers of fascism. Do not miss Georg Raphael Donners delightful fountain (1741) in the courtyard or the superb Renaissance portico to the Salvatorkapelle in the Salvatorgasse directly behind the building.
