Town Hall (Rathaus), Heidelberg

4.0
#8 of 16 in Historic Sites in Heidelberg
Get at the heart of the city's decision-making at Town Hall (Rathaus), the landmark 19th-century city hall that watches over the city center. The building is easily recognizable by its 112 m (367 ft) center spire, robin's egg-blue roof, and intricate Neo-Renaissance architecture. Built over 40 years by a team of seven architects, the structure's style reflects the economic state at the time--of wealth and prosperity--and represents one of the few completely preserved historical buildings in the city. Some of its 647 rooms are still used for official purposes today, but the lobby is open to the public and is yours to explore.

  • Worth seeing is this imposing Town Hall central but yet subtle, stands this beautiful building on the main market. Worth seeing and photogenic, the Town Hall is a photo opportunity for visitors to the city.

  • Locked cabin attendant then married public relations, meaning that people who waited and heard was impressive. In Europe, City Hall is a historical building, very historic buildings important to think.
