Aparently, this building has been the seat of the city administration since 1905. It features the tallest tower of any town hall in the world, hard to believe right? Looks magnificent, I stopped for a while when passing by. Glorious.

Tried to get up the tower and got totally lost inside the very ugly place which is now the council offices. Got stopped by some nasty guards (Group 4) and was told to "apply for a pass" to go up the tower (only at 11am or 2pm). Since I had been to Leipzig during DDR times, this reminded me of... More

The pictures speak for themselves. This is one of the most impressive buildings in Leipzig. Make sure you see it when visiting.

Didn't have time to go inside, however, was just amazed with how majestic it is from the outside. Looks like a castle. I will definitely recommend to go to the park on the opposite or just across the street and take some pictures with it from the distance!

The largest town hall in Germany and built in the early C20. Impressive and with a very pleasant Ratskeller.

The new town hall was completed in 1905 with the Palazzo Vecchio of Florence as a paragon. There are 578 rooms making it one of the biggest town halls in the world. There are 252 steps to viewing platform in 85 m height where an impressive panorama of Leipzig opens.

Theo Bildung itself is quite impressive just to look at. Inside you will find not only most of Leipzigs government, but also a great achitecture. There are two big halls sometimes with changing exhibitiones. But what i like most is going up the town halls tower. By paying a fee (around 5€) you are allowed to take the over 400... More
