We must have walked past that building 5 times last week and didn't really know it was the Town Hall. The architectural design is nice, and it sits right on the Limmat river near Grossmunster cathedral.

Located in a large square, in front of it, from November to December it has a Christmas Market Place.

Zurich's town hall is a bit surprising when taking into account the city's colorful history and international standing. I am not sure whether a guided tour is available.

I went by this place but not inside. It is interesting to see but nothing special. I enjoy seeing tower clocks. Not a destination to go out of your way.

Zurich town hall attracts people to listen to singers at the entrance of the building. It is a nice building at the limmat river border. Old building and well maintained. I could not go inside...

This is a nice, relatively small building that represents the City Hall. There are always singers and musicians at the outside main hall of the building playing, with the echoes from the building provide a beautiful background.

This building is worth a look as it sits on the River and actually flows underneath. Classic Swiss Architecture
