I was surprised and charmed by Paderborn's character and cute dt plaza area. The dome and the rathaus are fully restored and are in great condition. The shopping and restaurants are very good and plentiful in dt area!

Never went inside & Not really to sure what this building is about to be honest. But located in the middle of the town/shopping really can’t miss it. It’s just another great piece of architecture that Paderborn has to offer.

Old City Hall building in core area. Lots of pedestrian traffic around the area and some seating to just relax and enjoy the surroundings.

The Rathhaus was rebuilt in 1611 by a resolution and extended in subsequent years. Today, in the center of Paderborn near the cathedral, the council meetings and ceremonial weddings take place here. Unfortunately the large hall can not be visited. A tourist highlight is the...More
