Owner description: 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.

Lots of locals and tourists and many shops you can get a bargain. Also there are local designer shops and jewellery shops. A must see whilst in BRNO

Attractive, historical site as part of walk around Brno. Recommend. Uncrowded. We saw only from the outside.

In the center of Brno there is discreetly building with beautiful portal, high tower and many legends. Do you know legend about Brno dragon or Brno wheel? No? So that you can visit this place and see our dragon which is only big crocodile but for me and all Brno it is dragon. Of course you can go up the stairs to tower and see whole old town or visit hall. In summer in forecourt of old town hall there are many amusing performances. Petra

Doing a self guided tour of the city and this was our first stop. Gathered some Brno swag from the office and our tickets to do the climb up. Got to the top after a couple minutes (winded, but fine) and was a wonderful view. There are near plaques on the railing explaining the main points you are able to see as well. There isn't a lot of room up top, so thankful we went during a slow weekday afternoon. Spent just a few mins up top and seen everything we wanted.
(We went to Cathedral next and would have rather paid to climbed their tower for less of a fee, but were tired out by time got there so decided to skip it)

Once you climb the stairs, the views are amazing. There are 4 clocks, one on each side of the tower, that are run by one mechanism that you can see while on your way up the tower.
