City Hall - Salzburg

The Rathaus, also known as the Altes Rathaus, since the government moved to the Mirabell Schloss in 1947 is a four storey building on the corner of the Getreidegasse and Sigmund Haffner Gasse. It is instantly recognisable by the clock tower that is attached to it, which served as both a night watch tower and a means for Salzburgers to tell the time during the middle ages, as well as its beautiful Roccoco stucco work. The building itself dates back to the 15th century, being built in 1407, and served as the central government building for the city continually until 1947. Although there are still government offices in the building today, the ground floor is dedicated to shops, and you can buy all sorts of souvenirs here.
