Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Germany  /  Saxony  /  Leipzig  /  Altes Rathaus
Altes Rathaus, a Renaissance-style building, stands in a medieval square where the local government formerly met. Today, it's home to the city museum and houses many types of medieval artwork, including carvings, statues, paintings, and more. Peek into the banquet hall to see its open fireplaces, check out the treasure chamber, and explore the cellar, with its torture chamber and the jail. Some descriptions are offered in English, but many of the newspaper clippings, interviews, and sound clips are only in German. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Leipzig fast, fun, and easy.
