The building looked very unusual with bits added at different times and in different styles. The hall looked great and we would have liked to take a tour, but there were no English tours and whilst our German is adequate for ordering food and getting...More

There are some beautiful features to the Rathaus. The Oriel Window is one. In the courtyard is a modern day sculpture of the city, I think for viaually impaired. It is also enjoyed by children. On Monday ther was a nice market in the courtyard.

The most impressive at night, illuminated, surrounded by quiet empty streets, you may feel like in a medieval city.

The architecture around the square of the City Hall is really worth a look with a mixture of curious styles ((neo-) Gothic and Renaissance, etc.) and one of the most impressive examples I have seen. Do not forget to see the large church behind the...More
