Luckily the Rathaus seems to have survived the destruction of World War 2. Its very impressive and there is the option to go to the top of the dome which we opted not to do.

The building is spectacular. The food at the Atrium was just ok, after soup, main course and dessert, I was glad we had stopped at NordSee before. The portion were petite.

Nice place to eat - you sit in an atrium with good atmosphere. Food and wine was nicely prepared - in the better half but nothing speciel I would say. But for the whole experience you should go
