The Vienna City Hall was built in the years 1872 to 1883 according to the plans of Frederick V. Schmidt built. The floor plan forms a regular square of 152.5 meters long and 127 meters wide. Of the construction area of 19,430 square meters, 13,670 square meters are built on, the rest is attributable to seven farms. The height of the building until the passing ridge is 36.3 meters. The large tower measures 97.9 meters, without the so-called "Iron Town Hallman" at its peak. Since 1921 Vienna is also an independent state. The Town Hall is therefore the seat of the legislative Landtag and the local council, these two bodies probably have different functions, but consist of the same members. It is the official residence of the mayor (at the same time provincial governor), the city senate (also provincial government) and the city council, the center of administration. The style choice of the town hall architecture had a deeper meaning, because the time of the largest power development of the cities was the Middle Ages, it corresponds to the Gothic in the art. Therefore, the municipal council built their town hall in neo-gothic style.
