In a city with fantastic medieval and art nouveau buildings the City Hall does not stand out. A style you find everywhere in Europe (and beyond).

During a walk of the old town, we felt we had the cobbled streets to ourselves as there was hardly anyone around. This is a very grand building, heavily damaged during WW2, it has been beautifully restored.
