Altes Rathaus

The Old Town Hall, or Altes Rathaus, in Bamberg is quite a curiosity: The frescoes that adorn the facades are as amazing as the story behind the building’s construction.According to legend the bishop of Bamberg did not grant the citizens any land for the construction of a town hall. This prompted the townsfolk to ram stakes into the river Regnitz to create an artificial island, on which they built the town hall they so badly wanted. The location marks the old border of rule between the espiscopal city on the hills and the bourgeois island city and is a clear demonstration of the bourgeoisie’s thirst for power.The building is in a Gothic style and seems to balance precariously over the water, with the half-timbered Rottmeisterhaus added at a later date.Built from 1744 to 1756, it was the town hall of Bamberg until the later replacement took over.Originally influenced by Gothic, the building received Baroque and Rococo touches from Johann Jakob Michael Küchel in 1756. Anwar Johann painted the murals on the exterior walls.The Town of Bamberg is listed as a World Heritage Site
