Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus), Munich
(4.3/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Located at the Marienplatz in the historical district, this Gothic-style building dates back to the end of the Fifteenth century, rising to its Tower you can access fantastic views. Daily at 11:00, 12:00 and 17:00 hours, visitors can see the actual size of the chime figures commemorating the event that took place in the year 1517 to celebrate the end of the plague.

  • Beautiful building of the German Gothic that was built in the 15TH century, rebuilt after the war that he had suffered severe damage. Another icon of Munich, in which is the Toy Museum.

  • My favourite place in Munich!Especially when the town hall facade was planted with pink roses!
  • Beautiful rebuild of the old town hall. The old town is actually newer than the new town hall because it was completely destroyed during the war.
  • What a nice place. Don't miss the bells. Full with tourists.
  • Wonderful architecture. We were very impressed by the design and construction of this historical building.
  • Nice building, but it is dwarfed by the New town Hall a few decades meters away._
