Town Hall
view from the marketplace


Building the Town Hall as you see it now took many centuries. The “Gerichtslaube”, which is the oldest part of the brick building, was built at the beginning of the 15th century. In ancient times, the arch cellar was used as a store and now you will find a coffee shop in there. In the middle of the 15th century, the Cloth Hall, a wing built by the guild of the tailors, enlarged the building. Our Little Hall keeps a treasure: a wooden-carved wall made in 1462, which said to be the oldest secular wooden wall in whole Germany. At the end of the 19th century, the Town Hall was accomplished with the wing in front, which was built in Renaissance style.
