An eye catcher
Sep 2020 • Couples
This eye catching building at the end of the Markt, the main street of Meppen, is the historic town hall of Meppen, built in tje 15th century and enlarged in the 17th century. Due to the architecture and the historic value it is worth more than a passing look. A bit out of tune is the cafe on the ground floor. I found it a bit uninviting, but surely I got this completely wrong. However, this historic building is well up on the list of buildings to visit in Meppen.

Historic indeed
May 2019 • Solo
Perhaps this old city hall dating from 1408 very much stands out, because there are few historic residential houses around the market where it is located. The 1909 decision to rebuild the original 17th century stepped gable and tower was wise.

Especially the lower parts of the hall's structure drew my attention, because of the (glacial) boulders used as building material. The image of a ship on top of the tower proudly testifies of a great past, as Meppen was linked to the important Hanze trading cities in NW Europe.

Well worth a visit even though the ground floor café with terrace may distract a bit from its historical importance.
