Unmistakable gables and tower on the Marienplatz - and a playful surprise inside

Add to my guide

Old Town Hall

Key Gothic landmark

The fairytale stepped gables and pointy towers of the Altes Rathaus - dating back to at least the 14th century but overhauled in the 15th in relatively restrained Gothic style - are still a distinctive landmark on the Old Town's Marienplatz, and served as town hall until 1874. The interior preserves its wooden ceilings along with the heraldic and other symbolic adornments of the era. The tower is 55 metres (180 feet) high and actually predates the rest of the building, having been built in the 12th century as part of the city's defences. Today its use is more benign, a charming toy museum displaying and curating Bavarian children's playthings back to the 19th century.
