The city hall is a great piece of architecture and fronts on the Grand Parade which is across the street from the Castle of Good Hope. Definitely must see when in the Mother City.

Attended a Sunday afternoon concert of Viennese music by the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra in the main hall of the City Hall. Magnificent setting for a wonderful concert. Good opportunity to wander round the corridors and see the Edwardian splendour of the building.
