The city hall is the first building that I remember seeing on a picture from Vienna. So no wonder it remained in my mind as the symbol of the city.

Built from Friedrich von Schmidt between 1872 and 1883. Originally the City hall was planed to be built elsewhere - on the parking place between the Weihburg and Johannesgasse. It's present emplacement is due to the release in 1870 of the Parade square for construction.
