Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus), a late Gothic building constructed between 1470 and 1480, has been a canvas for various architectural styles as it was remodeled over the centuries. After it was damaged in World War II, the structure was finally restored to its original Gothic style. Be sure to look up in the ballroom to see the ornate wooden ceiling. Also look for the copies of the famous Morris Dancers and sculptures of Erasmus Grasser. A toy museum with history toys and games is tucked into the building, too.
