Although first mentions about the town hall comes from 13th century, when Stralsund, which at that time belonged to Principality of Rugen, has been given city rights, only around year 1400 to the nearly completed edifice monumental façade from Old Market side was added. Two-storey building on a rectangular plan with small inner courtyard has been rebuilt in first half of 18th century. This time Baroque portal and stucco were added from the side of Ossenreverstrasse Street. In 19th century, however, town hall was re-Gothicised and Baroque stucco were removed. Impressive elevation from the Alter Markt side suppose to show city's wealth and power.

Also, in year 1370 in the hall of city council the Treaty of Stralsund was signed, ending the conflict over trade privileges in Baltic Sea basin between Denmark and Hanseatic League.

beautiful center of the city: the city hall with its passage, in hanseatic style is of course the eye catcher. It is nice that there is a gastronomic part inside.

We really are impressed with the gorgeous city hall in Stralsund. It is elaborately carved and architecturally built in Hanseatic Gothic style typical in Northern Germany. Don’t miss this one.
