in short

Old Town Hall

in detail

The Old Town Hall deserves to be called one of merchant city’s landmarks. The Renaissance building with its baroque tower dominates the Market Place. From the remains of old prison cells in the cellar, via the historical rooms on the main floor, up to the tower cupola, the building is a compendium of the history of the city and itself the most valuable part of the museum.
The permanent exhibition presents the multifaceted Leipzig history from early times to the Battle of the Nations, from the Revolution of 1848 to the Peaceful Revolution of 1989 and German reunification.
