Vienna City Hall (German: Wiener Rathaus) is the seat of local government of Vienna, located on Rathausplatz in the Innere Stadt district.
Constructed from 1872 to 1883 in a Neo-Gothic style according to plans designed by Friedrich von Schmidt, it houses the office of the Mayor of Vienna as well as the chambers of the city council and Vienna Landtag.

Heuriger Schübel-Auer

Kahlenberger Str. 22,
1190 Wien

The Schübel-Auer with one of the oldest guest gardens at the foot of the Nussberg is one of the most beautiful traditional taverns in Vienna. ​
The Auerhof was built in 1642 and has been in the tenth generation since 1711.
The rooms, which radiate the charm and magic of bygone times through their walls and architecture, have been tastefully restored with great attention to detail and today offer both: the beauty and magic of history combined with the needs and comfort of the present.
