Day 167 of 365

Rathaus, Vienna


Day 167 of my "365 Days" project. The City Hall (Rathaus), Vienna at sunset.


Arrived in Vienna Friday evening for a mini-break, trying to escape the dull weather in Sweden.  The Vienna weather forecast for the week-end: sun, sun, and even more SUN!

Rathaus, Vienna


Rathaus, Vienna


The Rathaus serves as the seat of the both mayor and city council of the city of Vienna. It was designed by Friedrich von Schmidt in Gothic style, and built between 1782 and 1883. On the top of the tower is the Rathausmann, one of the symbols of Vienna. 


The Thessseus Temple, Vienna


The Thessseus Temple in the Volksgarten. The temple was intended to be a replica of the Theseion in Athens and was built to house Theseus and the Minotaur by Antonio Canova. The statue was moved to the Kunsthistorisches Museum (the Museum of Art History) in 1890, and now the space is sometimes used for temporary exhibitions.
