The town hall of Hamburg, Germany, is an absolute beauty. It is located near the Jungfernstieg and the Binnenalster and shows the extreme richness of the city in the past. It was built between 1886 and 1897 in the Renaissance revival style. The 112 meters high tower is an icon of the city. You can walk around inside and outside the building for a very long time and always discover something new as the building is very rich in decorations.

You can find statues for different professions, you can discover 20 emperors and kings of the Holy Roman Empire, on the roof statues of different saints and on the columns the faces of important personalities from Hamburg (including Heinrich Hertz, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Johannes Brahms, Felix Mendelsson Bartholdy and Carl von Ossietzky). Today the building is the seat of the parliament of the federal state of Hamburg.
