"Townhall" Town Hall/Rathaus Tip by tini58de
Town Hall/Rathaus, Heidelberg: 10 reviews and 14 photos
At the very end of the Main Street you will find the Heidelberg Townhall.
The very first townhall was destroyed by French troups in 1689. 12 years later, the foundation-stone for the new townhall was laid. Due to a fire in 1908, the townhall had to be reconstructed. Several houses located south of the building along the "Hauptstrasse" were pulled down and replaced by the new building which was to become part of the town hall.
Another building including a small bell tower was added here in 1961. It replaced the "Gasthaus zum Großen Faß" which had been located here from 1720 to 1956, a historic restaurant with the shape of the Castle's "Big Barrel".
Directions: The townhall is right in front of the cathedral - at the very end of the shopping zone.
