It is a university founded in 1365 by archduke Rudolf IV of the Habsburg dynasty. A place with a strong emotional connotation: here they learned and graduated from this faculty 15 Nobel laureates.

Visited on Tuesday 10th October. This has to be one of Vienna's grandest buildings, what an amazing place to learn at.

If you reach to Rathause you need to visit also this building. The x-mass market is unique also in December.
