The Town Hall of Augsburg (Augsburger Rathaus)
Ausburg Town Hall/Rathaus

The Town Hall of Augsburg (German: Augsburger Rathaus) is the one of the most significant secular buildings of the Renaissance style north of the Alps. It was designed and built by Elias Holl, Stadtbaumesiter (Master Builder of the town), in 1615-1624. Due to its historic and cultural importance, it is protected by the Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict.

Inside the Rathaus, Holl built three overlaying halls: on the ground floor, behind the main entrance, is the Lower Fletz, and on the floor above, the Upper Fletz; by far the most impressive room in the building, however, is the double-height Goldener Saal, or Golden Hall, with its magnificent doorways, murals and coffered ceiling. Adjacent to the Goldener Saal is the Prince's Room, designed as a retreat for important guests.
