Tübingen Travel Tip:
City Hall (Rathaus)
Tübingen City Hall (Rathaus)
The visually dominating City Hall was built with three stories in 1435, in 1508 heightened by a fourth level, and in 1511 decorated with an artfully made astronomical clock by Johannes Stöffler. The clock, which still functions, shows the course of the stars and the phases of the moon. The building's main facade, with its picturesque appearance, was completed for the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Tübingen University in 1877.
On the first floor you will find the Main Conference Hall in Alemanic timber framing construction; on the second floor is the Old Reception Hall (Öhrn) with interesting grisailles, the so-called
Pictures of Justice dating back to the 16th century.
