Old City Hall

Short facts

The Old Town Hall is a historic building in the centre of Leipzig. This city landmark is located directly on the market square.

The Old Town Hall, built by Hieronymus Lotter in 1556 and 1557, is one of the outstanding examples of German Renaissance architecture.

Until the beginning of the 20th century it was the seat of the Leipzig city council. Since 1909, the building has been home to the Museum of City History. The Naschmarkt with the Old Stock Exchange is at the back and can be reached via a passageway. The museum entrance is also located in this area. The City Hall houses a large number of valuable relics of Leipzig's music history, which you can find on a tour of the Leipzig Notenspur.
