The tall central spire of the Neus Rathaus can be seen towering over the Hofburg and Volksgarten. The Neo-Gothic building dates from the 19th century and was built between 1872 and 1883 to replace the Altes Rathaus in the Stephansdom Quarter. The building was designed by Friedrich von Schmidt who won a competition to deisgn the new Rathaus.
The main feature of the building is the huge central tower, topped by a statue of an armoured knight.

Address: Friedrich Schmidt Platz 1
Directions: The U-Bahn line 2 will take you to Rathaus Station.
