There are some beautiful features to the Rathaus. The Oriel Window is one. In the courtyard is a modern day sculpture of the city, I think for viaually impaired. It is also enjoyed by children. On Monday ther was a nice market in the courtyard.

While we did not have the time to take the afternoon tour of the interior, the exterior, particularly the part facing the town square, is really spectacular and ornate. Sadly, like many sections of Lübeck, this was damaged during WWII so you are seeing the...More
