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.

  • The old town hall has Gothic architecture and resembles a castle. It is located in the region of the Marienplatz.

  • From the outside the Town Hall looks really beautifully and his tour I advise you to complete at this stage. The Toy Museum is quite average, gives the impression of an unkempt, and seems to work there as punishment. It is not worth wasting time on the very successful. I think that, instead of delight to the old toys can be frightened, because some of the exhibits make the creeps.

  • This "old town hall" is one of the countless attractions of this great city. There is a that Nice Spielzeugmuseeum that is worth a visit.

  • You walk through Karls Gate, which is striking. The old town is beautiful, but the entire area is crowded with modern retail stores, losing a touch of charm. Most of the restaurants in this part of town are in the alley side of the streets. We almost missed this and couldn't find a good place to eat when we first arrived. Look on the side streets and "alley side" for the charming restaurants.
  • Awesome place to visit. A lot of history here!
  • You cannot go inside but it looks great and is just near the centre, can take a look:)
