  • The old town hall is at the top (or bottom, depending on your point of view) of the stone bridge. It's a lovely building and imposing, in the traditional Bavarian architecture.

  • I confes that we arrived here early on a walking tour, so we did not take a tour inside, but the exterior is photogenic both from the city side and river/bridge side 
  • We visited this city with an Italian guide. We admired this beautiful property located in the old part of the city after the old stone bridge crossing on foot. It is not a church, but the seat of the Mayor and some Council offices. There is also the Museum Reichstag, but we visited.

  • 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.
