Location and architecture

The Hamburg Town Hall is located in the centre of the city and consists of sandstone and granite. It seems almost like a castle, which unites different architectural styles. No wonder - seven architects have been involved in this building for the past 100 years. Situated near the Binnenalster, the town hall combines Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance elements and is therefore an impressive sight.

The main entrance is passable for all. Afterwards a great hall with big columns awaits you. These rooms are often used for exhibitions. There are a total of 647 rooms in the town hall. The large ballroom with its meter-high wall paintings is particularly beautiful to look at. You should also take a look at the Kaisersaal, which contains pictures of former mayors.

The Hygieia fountain is located in the inner courtyard. The female bronze figure Hygieia stands for health. The fountain is supposed to commemorate the last great cholera epidemic in the 19th century.

The After-work Parliament

Citizens of the city meet regularly in the plenary hall. This is also called the "after-work parliament", since parliamentarians actually have other professions. The citizenship sessions are open to everyone, so that anyone can experience politics live.
