Wroclaw's splendid Gothic Town Hall is the cynosure of the Market Square, and for centuries the most important building in the city. It was under the Town Hall's vaulted ceiling and sculpted pillars that the Wroclaw's political big wigs debated difficult decisions through the ages, and guests of honour were received. More recently John Paul II himself paid a visit. Today the building has lost its political functions and tourists are allowed to ogle at the splendid interiors of rooms such as the Burgher's Hall and the Great Hall, visit the Museum of City Art or sample some finely fermented hops at the famous cellar bar, Piwnica Swidnicka. On the outside have your camera at the ready for the 66m tower, the astronomical clock and a wealth of amusing decorative motifs.

My mother and her parents lived in Breslau before the war. Was there an Alexander strasse?
I have an etching in color of the famous Town Hall. It was where my mother lived and where my parents got their marriage license,(1924-1926)
I grew up with a drawing of this famous city hall on our living room wall as my mother lived in Breslau. When I saw it myself it surpassed my expectation. It is beautiful and the restaurant downstairs EXQUISITE!
And one more thing to add is that I believe it must have been hard to make for I had a project where we had to reconstruct towers and it was very hard
I think the architectual design is amazing, the structure is well supported, and the building is the most remarkable town/city hall I have ever laid eyes on
Now THAT's what I call a town hall! Gorgeous.
