The building is magnificent. The inside is also good, but the tour was with so much people. Moreover it was all in German. Not that my German is that bad, but I think that you really need a good level of German to understand all...More

Stunning when you consider the history and age. Lots of architectural detail to behold. On a practical note, however, the square could use a good hosing down- not clean and really smelled awful. I was surprised by this.

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 old town hall is full of history and the buildings are absolutely beautiful - and well maintained. The only reason I do not give it 5 stars is because, it was not possible to get guided tours in English, only German. That is just...More

If you want to see the inside we were told we would have to wait for a tour. AS time was tight, we just took photos and the outside has plenty to capture your attention.

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

We did not get to look inside, probably not allowed as it's still being used, but from the outside very impressive, as are most old German buildings
