Vienna's Ringstrasse

As mentioned in the previous post, Vienna's Ringstrasse is home to dozens of imposing 19th Century buildings, such as these.

Above is the Rathaus or Town Hall, while below is the Austrian Parliament Building:
 The Rathaus is full of lovely Gothic features:

 Opposite the Rathaus was the Burgtheater:
Ok, so I mentioned dozens of buildings and here's just three but it was cold that day and sleeting so I went for a coffee rather than take pics of all of them.

Thanks! I should have taken more pictures but it was sleeting and heading in to the warmth of Cafe Central for a cappuccino seemed like a really good idea.
