  • Nice. But very difficult to take good photo because space in front of building is small.
  • interesting place for history buff
  • A guided tour of a Town Hall (even with important cultural and historical importance) evokes mostly a yawn. Quite different here; When our guide knew to tie the entire group with its reports of the Town Hall leaders in may 2014. History to touch and sit down so to speak, because we have been asked to take advantage of (almost) all historical seating and then very informative and entertaining such as above clarified which statuses were allowed to use the respective piece of furniture. So you can make history alive.
