Overview
More
A significant historical building in the centre of Brno. Today, the Old Town Hall serves mainly cultural purposes, as it houses a gallery, an information centre, and a permanent exhibition on its history. In summer, you can visit its historical halls and climb up the 63-metre tower to enjoy an impressive view of Brno from the top. The courtyard serves as a venue for various concerts, festivals, theatre performances, and film screenings. Enter its arched passage through the portal beneath the legendary Late Gothic turret by sculptor Anton Pilgram. In the passage, you can see two items from other famous Brno legends: a crocodile, also called the Brno dragon, and a wheel. The courtyard beyond, with Renaissance arcades from the end of the 16th century, was built by Italian designers, and later modifications are the result of its Early Baroque renovations. The Old Town Hall served its original purpose until 1935 when the authorities moved to the New Town Hall located at Dominican Square.

If you haven't seen the crocodile under the tower of the Town Hall you haven't been to Brno. It's a must see thing. You can climb the tower and look across Brno but in five visits I still haven't done that but every time I...More

If you want to visit the tower, buy your ticket at the tourist information centre on the ground floor. Then it's less than 200 steps up and you can enjoy the view. Definitely worth it.

There is a really nice view from the tower, but quite some stairs to get on top. It is very close to other attractions.

There was another Christmas market here, as well as a life size nativity scene, a petting zoo, lots of good eats, mulled wine, and things to buy. A pretty area in the Old town.
