Fodor's Review

The Rathaus's tower gives you a good view of town. Half of the town hall is Gothic, begun in 1240; the other half is neoclassical, started in 1572, and renovated after its original facade was destroyed by a fire 500 years ago.

Historiengewölbe. Below the Rathaus building are the historic vaults and dungeons, which house a museum that brings the Thirty Years' War to life. Rathaus Building. €2. Mid-Mar.–Apr., daily 10–4; May–Oct. 9:30–5:30; Dec., weekdays 1–4, weekends 10–4. Closed Nov., Jan., & Feb.
