Lübeck Town Hall is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful town halls in Germany. When visiting Lübeck, don't miss out on the guided tour of the Town Hall! You can find further information here.

Splendour and Might

From 1230, three gabled houses were constructed on the marketplace and extended over the next few centuries to ultimately create the Hansesaal (Hanseatic Hall) for meetings; and the Danzelhus (Dance Hall) for social meetings.
Its interior boasts a grand audience hall: Don't be surprised to see the doors to this former courtroom have different heights.  Acquitted defendants were allowed to leave the hall via the tall door, sentenced defendants had to remove their hats and leave via the low door.
