    The old town hall on the marketplace is fine and in good condition. The House held exhibitions and there is a museum.

    Great building the entire façade is worth a visit with its passage to the Naschmarkt, the shops with his offer, much to recommend the City Museum with its cellar, Christmas market with its Tower brass
