Lovely building in a lovely vibrant square, was a busy area with lots of people around. Well worth a visit for the atmosphere and choices of cafés and bars.

It's true: Freiburg has a particular charme even without stunning buildings. This is the case of the Town Hall too. It's in a very nice little square where you can enjoy the shadows of the trees. Lovely

The buidling was very nice, but there is nothing spectacular to draw you to this. It is near just another shopping area with a lot of common stores, junk stores, a few nice shoppes, and fast food restaurants - certainly not worth a trip to see it when there are other beautiful towns with stunning buildings in Europe.

When compared with other town halls in Germany, this one seems somewhat pale. However, its beauty is in its simplicity. I was seated with my two feet soaked in the running water of the many small 'canals' crisscrossing the town area and I couldn't help wondering how small is this town hall when compared with others; yet it's pretty and...

the town hall was just like any other, but the architecture was absolutely beautiful, just like the rest of the area

Look at the building, compare it with the "Rathaus" in Basle. The two cities have a common past
