One of the most impressive historical buildings in Leipzig. It was built in 1905. The main tower is one of the tallest in Germany and looks very grand.

This is one of the more impressive buildings in Leipzig and although we did not have time to go inside, we made time to walk by it to view the beauty of the architecture and detail of the city hall, especially the tall towers. Well worth a walk by at a minimum.

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

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.
