Meissen’s venerable town hall is located directly on the market square of the Saxon city. Built in the late Gothic architectural style, the imposing size of the building occupies the entire northern side of the market square. In the neighbourhood are equally impressive restored town houses, which indicate the prosperity of the town in recent centuries. The town hall itself was built in the course of the 15th century. An eye-catcher is the pointed-arched main portal with the town coat of arms made of sandstone and the two throats on both sides. Inside the town hall, the large council hall on the upper floor is particularly worth seeing. It has a wood-beamed ceiling resting on three stone pillars.
