“Sadness”

Reviewed September 14, 2013

Beautiful building, beautiful views but the mock up of the devastation during the 2nd world war was very sad.

The Rathaus (City Hall) illuminates a scandal in this community that undermined the reputation of this Imperial Free City. Although a respected city in the Hanseatic League your may see and hear the story in an English video. Don't miss this interesting part of history.

My mom had gone to see this in the 1970's. I wanted to see it as well. There is a short movie that gives the history of the room you will be seeing. They did have a version in English, and the panels were also in German and English. The room its self that is a jewel! It is covered in a wall to ceiling fresco. Because of all the traffic over the years the room is now closed off by glass, but you can still walk a little ways into the room to see everything. There is also many documents to view. I really enjoyed this side trip. If you have the chance I would go see it.

this is the Old Rathaus used before the 1200s thru 1600s rught on the main square, with wall to ceiling paintings (1400's I think) that reallu should be seen, they will statr a flim about the painting and history in English if you request it. not a large building but very interesting, esp for those you love art or history

Those visiting this romantic medieval city must make point of walking up the steps to the Rathaus. Walking through those old oak doors at the top transports you back in time and you become one of the city elders about to take your seat in the small painted council room. The artwork is exquisite and has to be seen to appreciate the detail and the effort. Unfortunately, the humidity of those early city elders and the hugh crowds of tourist since has caused significant damage to the delicate paintings, and following a comprehensive restoration visitors have to be content with a glimpse of the room through a clever glass tunnel. However, you do get to sit in a model of the room with its artwork and watch an informative and well presented twelve minute film, which is in both German or English (although the latter needs to be asked for). The archive room with its medieval safes and strongbox is also well worth seeing.
