Dining in the Rathaus

The Town Hall (Rathaus) in Vienna is a government building housing the office of the mayor and also the city council. The construction work started in 1872 and the building was completed eleven years later.



The long corridor in front of the Town Hall building is a meeting point and resting place of the locals.


At the basement is a historic restaurant operating since 1899, called the Wiener Rathauskeller. The restaurant is beautifully adorned with chandeliers and vaulted ceiling.



We had our dinner there during our first night in Vienna and the soup served was with pan-fried egg strips.


The main course was carved fried chicken served with parsley potatoes. The chicken cutlet was very crispy on the outside and moist inside.


To cap it off, a dessert with vanilla ice-cream and mixed berries was served. The little sourness of the berries went well with the sweet ice-cream.
