Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We saw this important historic building while we were wandering in the centre. It’s located near St. Sebaldus Church. The Town Hall consists of some different parts. The oldest part was built between1332-1340 in Gothic style. It was rebuilt in 15th century. The other part was built between 1616-1622 in Renaissance style. Its gates are beautiful. I think this important building worth a short visit.

Stately in all its glory, this building is still working. History oozes out. Maintained to keep its façade impressive.

The dungeon tour for English, is basically an issue of a display unit which has no subtitles and gives little information. The tour guide was miserable and just pointed towards cells. We were shocked we were outside... "was that it?" We all asked each other.

Don't bother with that.

Despite of being one of the most important city in the Holy Roman Empire, Nuremberg did not have its own town hall until 14th century. Construction of Gothic edifice, located to the east from St. Sebald Church, and on the right, North bank, of Pegnitz River started in 1332 under direction of city's architect Philip Gross. Wars, Craftsmen's Uprising, recurrences of Black Death plague, pogroms of Jews, or later in 16th century conflicts between Catholics and Protestants, all these did not stop city from growth. Having acquired city rights along with other privileges Nuremberg flourished despite of all these calamities. Its most know and celebrated citizen, Albrecht Durer, designed and directed executing of wall and ceiling painting for Rathaus' great hall. It was, at the time, the largest wall and ceiling painting in Europe, surpassed only by Sistine Chapel. Durer's work was a part of major renovation works ordered by city council in the first half of 16th century. One hundred years later another great works were undertaken during which town hall acquired its elongated, monumental West Facade with Baroque portals. under city's master builder and architect Wolf Jacob Stromer. What we can see today is from the West its Renaissance elevation with strong influence of Italian architecture. South - East part of Town Hall building preserved its original Gothic elements. Beneath the Great Hall are located medieval dungeons where guided tour can take you to the torture chambers and prison cells. In Ehrenhalle, on the ground floor, are kept replicas of imperial regalia. Unfortunately, none of the Durer's wall paintings has survived. They were destroyed during WWII, after heavy bombing in 1944-45.

In the center of the old town of Nuremberg there you can find the Town Hall - built ages ago still functioning today.
Now since you are walking through the old town this is a place you should add to your landmarks you want to check out. It is an impressive building than was rebuilt after WWII - like many other buildings in Nuremberg - and they really did a very good job. Now for those into history for sure it is more to it than for the regular tourist, also for those into architecture it can be very interesting.
Also those into sculpture might find it interesting due to the decorations that can be seen on the above the doors and on the building. Of-course if you are on a guided tour you will learn much more about the place. What I'm not sure if you can get inside and visit since it is an administrative building
Overall I do recommend you include the Town Hall into your Nuremberg tour.

So few people are aware of the significance of the statuary above the doors of the Nurnburger Rathaus. These represent the 4 eras told about in the book of Daniel which accurately tell of the future of the Babylonians, the Persians and Medes, Alexander and the Greeks, and the Roman Empire. They were sculpted in the Reformation period of Martin Luther and his contemporaries. They tell the story of the four great empires - and the revival of the 4th, under the Papal system, is still in existence. A very significant work and a very significant story, known by few.

The Town Hall - yet another reconstructed building after the extensive damages of WW2 bombing. Good job though. Can’t miss the place if you are in the Altstadt

Seeing the Town Hall is certainly interesting and very worthwhile. I think you should certainly make time to see it.
