As in the Middle Ages, the Town Hall Square
is the heart of the Old Town. Historically, it served as a marketplace, but today is the stage for various events, the most well-known being the Christmas Market. As you may have guessed, the square takes its name from the gothic Town Hall building
. During the summer, visitors can climb the Town Hall’s tower
to a 34-metre-high belfry balcony with views over the Old Town. Opposite the Town Hall is the Town Hall Pharmacy
, the oldest continually operating apothecary in Europe.
