A very interesting building, we were only outside, but still, it gives us the good impression. Opposite, there is the modern church, I like the contrast.

We were really surprised! I had never been in a Rat-house, and honestly didn’t know what to think. It was really nice, but we never saw a single rat. Crazy!

One of the most impressive historical buildings in Leipzig. It was built in 1905. The main tower is one of the tallest in Germany and looks very grand.

Aparently, this building has been the seat of the city administration since 1905. It features the tallest tower of any town hall in the world, hard to believe right? Looks magnificent, I stopped for a while when passing by. Glorious.
