Even though the Kaiser's army used it as their headquarters for this section of the Western Front and the Nazi occupying army had full use of it the Council Chamber in its full medieval splendour is worth a visit for anybody interested in history.

This City Hall is a real treat to visit. The town square is lovely to walk around. The city hall transforms at night time with colourful lighting - you have to see it in the day and night!
