Take a tour of Wernigerode Town Hall in Wernigerode, Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Deep in the heart of the Harz mountain region in central Germany sits the ancient town of Wernigerode.
In the central square of this municipality, amidst colorful houses, stands the eminent town hall.
It is still used as the main meeting and decision making locale of the town, and as such is not usually open to the public.
The Wernigerode Town Hall displays classic 16th century half-timbered German Gothic architecture.
The ornate architecture, oriel windows, and many small spires, aid in creating a grand focal point of the town.
Visitors to the structure often pass through a bustling market that thrives in the square outside the building.
