This Renaissance style building was constructed between 1896-1901 and is located on Town Square in the center of Freiburg. In fact, the new Town Hall is actually connected to the old Town Hall (1559) by a central building! A terrace was built above the entrance arcade of the new town hall as well as modifications of the façade and windows... More

Stop by and view this building for a taste of Freiburg in the past. Looks like something out of a movie but is a active busy place.

The tourism office adjoins with very helpful staff. One good thing is they have a live webcam to see what the weather is like for hiking. The new town hall itself is beautiful inside and out. Used mostly now for functions and weddings.

It's a beautiful place in the city. Fantastic architecture. Very nice square with a fabulous ice café in summer (it's closed in wintertime and then houses a fantastic board game shop before Christmas). Great place to have a coffee or a wonderful ice cream creation. If the kids like the "Bächle-Boote" the little boats which can go float in the... More

It's almost impossible to pick a favourite building in Freiburg, but the New Town Hall has to be up there. Exactly the type of architecture you go to that part of German to see. A pleasant part of a pleasant town.

The new town hall was created from 1896 to 1901 due to modification of a semi-detached house from the Renaissance. For many years, it served as an administration building of the university founded in 1457; later it was then an anatomy and polyclinic. This is a very beautiful building from the outside that it will make you stand some time... More

You will probably pass in front of the new city hall if you decide to walk through the city center. It is an interesting old building which should be in your Freiburg's album anyway! :-)

The New Town Hall in Freiburg is quite unique and very attractive. When we arrived at our destination, the house that stood out was the Town Hall. Its windows stood out as well with its ornate yellow bars. I found out that in 1901 two houses that were built in the 16th century were linked together by a central hallway.... More

This building and the area surrounding it is especially attractive on market day. The only anomaly is that the buildings a McDonald's sign on it which is brown in an effort to fit, which it does not.

This was an impressive building, and a beautiful example of Schwarzwald architecture at its finest. I enjoyed getting to take pictures of it, and see the facility in person. It was one of many attractions in a small area, making it a very good photo trip.
