Definitely worth a stop. The exterior is beautiful and very intricate.I was surprised the building was open to the public. I believe there are tours but the signs were in German even though I think it was telling you when the English tours were being offered. There was currently a photo exhibit on fair trade in the main room. The... More

A sumptuous building, and not a bad guided tour at all. Worth visiting for a bit of history. Plan your visit to make it for a tour.

This town hall - well, town palace - is a great historic building that charts the mercantile rise of this Hanseatic capital...... and it really showcases the wealth of German merchants across the centuries. There are grand rooms, marbled floors, gilded pillars,... More

This most imposing townhall was recently cleaned and renovated, soot and grime removed from the sandstone. The chambers open for public viewing are most impressive with their gorgeous woodwork, stone work and artifacts. An aristocratic ambiance envelopes the entire building and beautifully reminds us of more gracious, vigorous times with much history past and present.

It's really fun to get inside this old town hall. There are English tours frequently, the price is low, and it's really fun to see all the opulent rooms.
