“Stunning interior is a feat of reconstruction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This was my first introduction to the German art of reconstructing old landmark buildings that were destroyed in WWII, and it was amazing. Beautifully redone murals and gilding inside.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Gorgeous renovation of the original after WW2. Very detailed adn awe inspiring. I can't say enough about the beauty of this building, particularly the interior frescoes, guilt, and woodwork. Of particular interest are the huge iron heaters!

“Worth a photo”

The City Hall is very representative of a city which was once the capital of Bavaria. It is a magnificent building and well worth seeing.
