“Climb to the top of the tower!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

I didn't visit the rest of the town hall, just went up the tower. Quite a climd (there's no lift), so not very suitable for small children or older people. Brilliant views of the city though, and not very busy like these towers usually are. A must see on a visit to Toru!

“Gingerbread town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Torun - a very nice town, with graceful old town, many beautiful houses and tasty gingerbread.The town hall is surrounded with so many intersting spots and corners that you could spend there a lot of time.

“Lovely building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Disappointing that the museum co-located in the Town Hall was not open when we were there, but the tour and history of the Ratusz itself was enjoyable. There is an option to climb the tower for a birds-eye view of old Torun.

“A peaceful gallery of Polish paintings up to the present day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

We went around the art gallery of Polish paintings - some famous names here.
Lovely!
Labels are in English as well as in Polish.

Hardly any other visitors despite the teeming hundreds in the town square outside.

Museum staff were really attentive.

We didn't have time to look at the Gothic gallery - maybe next time.

“An Easy Climb with Fantastic Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Unlike some of these Medieval towers, this one is quite easy to climb. Lots of landings to rest at before going higher. Note that they charge you to take photos inside. You could take them when they're not looking- I've heard that some people have done that :) Anyway, once you get to the top, the view is outstanding. You can see the entire old town and the modern town as well.
