The original Gothic Town Hall has been completely refurbished in 1653.
The façade of the original Gothic Town Hall was decorated with paintings and banderoles that depicted the building´s foundation legend. On the ground floor was a "Bread Vault", where local bakers were given the opportunity to sell their bread, and a public "Scales Vault". The "Bürgerstübl" (Residents´ Parlor) became a "decent ward" in the year 1791.
The Town Hall was extensively restored in 1893 by architect Raimund Jeblinger who left a Romanesque stamp on the building. The remains of this renovation can only be seen in fragments of the present building, such as the tower and the entrance. The only original room is the Conference Hall with the mayors´ gallery and the imperial portraits (Maria Theresia, Joseph II, Franz Joseph I), which remind of the historical incidents of the years 1779 (Innviertel Region was assigned to Upper Austria by the Peace of Teschen) and 1857 (Ried was granted the town charter).
Can be visited within a Guided Tour of Town only.
