Old City Hall, a Renaissance-style building, stands in a medieval square where the local government formerly met.

Peek into the banquet hall to see its open fireplaces, check out the treasure chamber, and explore the cellar, with its torture chamber and the jail. Some descriptions are offered in English, but many of the newspaper clippings, interviews, and sound clips are only in German.
