This beautiful Old Town Hall was built in several stages from 13th century to 15-16th. It’s one of the landmark of Wuerzburg. The most impressive part is the Roten Turm (from about 1660) and the wonderful facade painting from 16th century. It’s a must-see site!

Don't miss this little one room display of the destruction of Wurzburg in WWII. Although not a large area the artifacts and displays paint a vivid picture of the results of war had on this beautiful city and its residents.

Entry is free. The display is easy to find at the Rathaus, just before the bridge.

The old city hall has been completely renovated and all painted up. It is a lovely landmark in the old town, near the cathedral.

We walked up to the Rathaus or the City Hall which looked relatively simple except for the gorgeous red coloured southern entrance.
On the left side of the Rathaus, was the Gedenkraum 6 März 1945 Memorial which commemorates the 20-minute Allied bombing raid which took place on the 16th of March 1945. Most of the downtown buildings of Würzburg were damaged and destroyed in the resultant firestorm. Countless lives were lost, specially of women and children.
It is difficult not to notice the horizontal lines cut into the archway on the right side while exiting from the Town Hall. They are the marks left by floodwaters in the three devastating floods that affected Würzburg
Adjoining the Rathaus and near the Four-Tube Fountain, is the Grafeneckart, the oldest part of the Würzburg Town Hall built as early as 1659.
The square in front of the building is called Beim Grafeneckart; a prominent sundial, the painting of a green tree and the bay window can be seen on the south facade. It is by virtue of its square shaped 55 meter high Romanesque tower, that this the historic building standing between the Domstrasse and the Alte Maunbrücke can be spotted from afar.
A scale model of the WWII bombing, starkly depicting the extent of the damage to the city caused by dropping of 1000 tons of explosives on the night of 16th March 1945, and loss of 5000 lives within twenty minutes is housed in the Grafeneckart.

This is a set of lots of buildings and houses set together..the Grafenechart built in 1200, the tower belonging to the medieval town hall . The Rathaus is a muddle of connected buildings constructed at different times.

During our time in Würzburg, we walked past the Rathaus, one of the oldest town halls in Germany, which consists of many different buildings that were built in different styles and at different times throughout the city's history. The earliest part of the Würzburg Rathaus, the tower, dates back to the 13th century. Persons interested in architecture, history, and city government would enjoy visiting this complex.

Rathaus is in fact set of houses, city was ruled by bishop who didn't allow to build representative houses.
Original part is Chapel, built 1339, then 1453 the city's first clock (tower) was added. 16th and 17th century saw additional constructions and 1822 monastery of the Carmelites was added. Late 19th century the Renaissance facade building toward river was built.
So this city hall is totally different. There is exhibition about Würzburg destruction on 16.3.1945 bombing.

It was great to visit the Rathaus to learn about the impact of WWII on Würzburg and its residents. The model of the town and the impact of the bombs/fire is a poignant reminder of how war impacts both sides and the importance of peace in our modern world.
