Good way to burn off any cake you have eaten!! Hundreds of stairs to the top of the town hall, ending up with a fabulous view of Brno.

You're greeted by a stuffed crocodile hanging from the ceiling when entering the town hall corridor, which is an interesting sight. I just wandered around a bit and bought a ticket to climb up the tower, but everything else was closed. Apparently there is a regular tour that you can take that probably gives access to more rooms, but I... More

Worth a visit, but there wasn't a ton to see. Glad I stopped by, but don't strain yourself to get there.

There is an alligator hanging from the ceiling in the entrance, and the building is nice. There also is the information center.
