Also on the Ringstrasse, the Wiener Rathaus is of course one of the city's most important civic buildings, and a perfect example of what you will notice is the Austrian capital's predilection for imposing structures (especially of a neo-Gothic flavour) both secular and religious. These five storeys rise nearly 100 metres (328 feet), crowned by Rathausmann, a statue of a medieval knight, which has become a symbol of Vienna. The square out front tends to be very busy, and many of the city's big public celebrations are held here, such as winters famous Christkindlmarkt, the enormous Christmas market which includes not only acres of stalls but an ice-skating rink.
