"Town Hall, Baroque style" City Hall - Rathaus Tip by Maria81
City Hall - Rathaus, Hamburg: 45 reviews and 81 photos
Hamburg features one of Europe's largest and most lavishly decorated Town Halls. The Baroque Rathaus with the massive spire dominates the surrounding area and provides a bit of a challenge to a photographer (without a wide angle lens) trying to fit it all into one picture.
The building is fairly new, having been rebuilt after the fire in the mid-19th century. And, just to prove that there is nothing more permanent than something that is temporary, the city council spent 55 years in temporary accommodation while waiting for the new Town Hall to be constructed.
At over 600 rooms it was probably worth the wait!
There are guided tours in both German and English, which cover the most significant ones, including the Emperor Hall and the Great Hall. The tour takes about 40 minutes.
