  History of the USA in the Munich Town Hall
by TempNomad

Okay, so I know that the Rathaus is not exactly off the beaten path, but how many people go inside? Well, we did. It's a working city hall, so hopefully people are respectful and quiet, but the inside is just as interesting as the outside.

We climbed the steps gingerly, waiting to be told to leave. But, apparently, it's a public building, so people can wander about, at least in the central area. So as you go up into the building, you see stone lions, interesting carvings, and stained glass windows of various hues. Several alcove rooms have especially interesting windows. Pictured are some windows that reminded us of home.

These kind of windows reminded us that the New Rathaus is not as old as it was made to look. :)

Enter inside the door, before the open area. There are stairs to your left and right...choose the right-hand stairs.
