New Town Hall (Neus Rathaus) Reviews
The new town hall has an amazing Gothic style architecture. The building is the main attraction of Marienplatz. The front facade is very grand and the clock tower is very speical. more »
We were there on a Sunday, so we didn't go inside, but the frontage on the plaza is impressive. Incredible, really. more »
Incredibly magnificent building. This town hall, in my opinion, is the most beautiful building of this type that could be found in Germany (at least from my point of view of the five cities that I visited). I saw different town halls, both new and old, and in good condition, and in a more "tired", historical... but I have never seen such a monumental, large town hall at the same time elegant and rigid in architecture. The Town Hall is a neo-Gothic building in which there are 400 rooms with a total area of more than 9 thousand sq. m., and was built in 1867-1908. On the central tower of the town hall, there are chimes that play a 15-minute performance. Every day at 11 o'clock 43 bells begin to beat, windows open, and 32 figures begin to play scenes from city life. In summer, the performance is at 12 and 17 hours too. In the courtyard and on one side of the town hall there are entrances to a very beautiful restaurant, which is located under the town hall and which serves delicious food.
Incredible building that will take your breath away! you can enter and visit for a fee (4€ I believe). The building architecture is very impressive from all around, and at certain hours the bell ring with some animations.
