Goerlitz Old Town Hall

Goerlitz Old Town Hall


Magnificent Renaissance building in the old town

The Old Town Hall of Görlitz looks back on an eventful history. It has been the official seat of the city administration since 1350, but it was not until 1369 that it was designated as the city’s town hall. Today, the town hall consists of several connected buildings on Görlitz’s Untermarkt and is home to some of the city’s offices. Special features are the raised town hall tower with the clock attached in 1524 and the Annunciation pulpit next to the town hall staircase. Here you will also find a statue of Justitia as a sign of the council’s high jurisdiction. The coat of arms of the member towns of the Upper Lusatian Six Towns Association can be found on the extension completed in 1903 in the neo-Renaissance style.
