Vienna Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus)

Wipplingerstraße 6-8, Vienna, 1010

The Basics

The Altes Rathaus was first built in the 13th century, but the majority of the present-day building stems from its 18th-century baroque redesign featuring details like the striking Renaissance portico and the monumental Andromeda Fountain by Georg Raphael Donners. The town hall housed the magistrate of Vienna until the 19th century, and now is where the Museum of the Austrian Resistance Movement is located. Join a bike, kick bike, or minivan city tour to take in the Altes Rathaus along with other top attractions like St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Vienna State Opera, Hundertwasserhaus, and the Albertina.
