Place Gutenberg, Strasbourg: 13 reviews and 31 photos
This beautiful building is very special. In the XVth, all houses in the city were half-timbered and contrary to other European cities, the Antiquity did not inspire any architect.
The Neubau (New Building) was began in 1582 on the Northern side of what is now Place Gutenberg. It was both the first stone building in the city and the first built in the style of the Italian Renaissance. It was first used as a Congress Palace and later as the city Hall. Since 1802, it is the seat of the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie (Chamber for Trade and Industry).
