Monumental medieval city hall which gives you an idea about how this smallish city was big and powerful in ancient times. There's a lot of art, architecture, furniture and artefacts to admire inside. A Torun must!

Reaching the top of this tower was not fun but the view once you reach the top is awesome. The museums are very nice as well!

It's a fun climb up the narrow wooden staircase. Some interesting photos to view ( in English ) as well. Great photo comparison of before and after renovations to the town hall. You pass the bells and the mechanics for the clocks. The best part is the view from the top. Great view of the square to the river and... More

A beautiful red brick building, a symbol of Torun. Inside the museums (rather only for those interested art), the tower can go to admire the Old Town.

This building is a symbol of Toruń. If you are visiting the city it is a must see point of your trip. The building has very interesting history, therefore you should take a guided tour inside. If you do not have time to visit interior, you have to go upstairs to the tower, where you will find amazing panorama of... More

We came to Torun for one reason, to bring my Fathers many photos to a small, but up and coming Museum which is only interested in the P O W'S of the 2nd world war. My father with many others was marched from France and then by cattle trucks to Torun from 1940 to 1945. We met by Peter Olecki... More

The building is the heart of the wonderfully preserved Old Town of Torun. It dominates the beautiful Rynek and is visible from afar. Admission is cheap - 11.50PLN from memory. The girl at the cash desk was superbly unfriendly, bordering on rude but the rest of the staff were OK. The exhibits on the ground floor relate to the town's... More

Located in the center of the old town square, the city hall cannot be missed. It is an impressive gothic building, built in the typical hanseatic brick gothic style. One should add that it is one of the very few surviving european gothic structures that aren't a church. It is a very beautiful and photogenic building with a detailed and... More
