Ninkasi Hôtel de ville, Lyon

Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
Ninkasi Hôtel de ville is Lyon’s city hall and one of the largest historic buildings in the area. The interior still operates as the city hall, but the exterior stands as a grand sentinel flanking a main square. Its 17th- and 18th-century edifice is worthy of admiration. The building has been classified as a Monument Historique since 1886, about 250 years after the builders broke ground. Notice the half relief of Henry IV n the middle of the facade; this was once a relief of Louis XIV. However, during the French revolution King Louis was removed from the facade. A blank spot stood on the spot until an the image of Henry replaced him during the restoration.

  • Lyon was one of the most brilliant appearance, though in the District Government Office building. Spot, the citizens of Lyon who had the most respect I was able to see things. The square is also sensible, South Korea had a bit of a look in.

  • Town Hall in Lyon-unreal beautiful building (or rather-a complex of buildings occupying an entire block, with a courtyard), before which you can spend a lot of time looking at different parts. Located between place de la Comedie and the Terreaux. The town hall was built in the year 1672, later damaged by fire, was reconstructed by different architects but only won, combining in his guise of different styles and elements. Highly recommend to pay attention, including unique 17-century carillon, with 65 bells.

  • We came by here after a visit to Monsieur Paul. A great experience, especially in the dark, then everything is illuminated and looks more impressive. Drop by and enjoy a stop at the Cafe - Tres francais! Conclusion: Absolutely!

  • Good beer, good music, good atmosphere. A nice place to meet people.
  • Great burgers, great beers, great neighborhood but small terrace. (I also like the salads.)
  • The beer was weak and did not compare to the same beers we had in Tarare 3 hours before. Hamburger was not cooked.
  • Ninkasi is an institution in Lyon. It is small without charm especially when they tamped in the cellar with the aircon on bottom. And for the food is good but not top...
