You can go into this city hall and see exhibits related to the Treaty of Westphalia. There are documents and other historical artifacts in several rooms. It's small but interesting and worth seeing.

A very classical building in the hart of the old city. A must see. I did not go inside because it was to late but was able to spend some time in the courtyard checking it out.
