Vienna City Hall is also among the dream wedding venues.

Vienna City Hall is situated opposite the famous German-language theatre Burgtheater on Ringstraße, the tree-lined boulevard that arcs around the city centre. It was planned in 1868 and completed in 1883. The original city hall, the Old City Hall situated in Wipplingerstraße, had become too small for the city administration due to the growth of the city and its population. It was therefore necessary to build a new, larger city hall. In 1885 the Vienna City Council took up work in the new City Hall on Ringstraße.

Vienna City Hall was built from sand-lime brick in Neo-Gothic style, has a floor space of 19,592 square metres and an area of 113,000 square metres, seven courtyards, 1,575 rooms and its corridors have a total length of more than 2.5 kilometres. Vienna City Hall houses the office of the mayor, serves as location for conferences and magnificent festivities, and is one of Vienna’s most impressive sights.
