Zurich's town hall is a bit surprising when taking into account the city's colorful history and international standing. I am not sure whether a guided tour is available.

I went by this place but not inside. It is interesting to see but nothing special. I enjoy seeing tower clocks. Not a destination to go out of your way.

It has a really beautiful entrance and the entrance hall is typical of many old buildings. It is where the services of Zurich to the public are, the majority of them. The staff are extremely friendly. You cannot just walk around except in the entrance...More

Zurich town hall attracts people to listen to singers at the entrance of the building. It is a nice building at the limmat river border. Old building and well maintained. I could not go inside...

This is a nice, relatively small building that represents the City Hall. There are always singers and musicians at the outside main hall of the building playing, with the echoes from the building provide a beautiful background.

This building is worth a look as it sits on the River and actually flows underneath. Classic Swiss Architecture

The Town Hall stands on the banks of the river, an imposing structure in its own right. It used to be a marketplace earlier but today, the building is a seat of government. The gold designs all around are indeed a nice touch!
