This is the town hall building of Zurich. The architecture is square. You will see it on your tour of Zurich.

We must have walked past that building 5 times last week and didn't really know it was the Town Hall. The architectural design is nice, and it sits right on the Limmat river near Grossmunster cathedral.

I went by this place but not inside. It is interesting to see but nothing special. I enjoy seeing tower clocks. Not a destination to go out of your way.

Zurich town hall attracts people to listen to singers at the entrance of the building. It is a nice building at the limmat river border. Old building and well maintained. I could not go inside...

This is a nice, relatively small building that represents the City Hall. There are always singers and musicians at the outside main hall of the building playing, with the echoes from the building provide a beautiful background.
