    The east wing of the town hall with its magnificent 24 m high late Gothic display wall was built around 1430. About 50 years later, the transverse structure with the court arbor was added. This building illustrates the former prosperity of the city's citizens. The magnificent town hall ballroom and the wedding room are located on the top floor. The ground floor and the basement are used as a museum. The town hall is considered a showpiece of German architecture.

    Tangermünde's town hall was built in the 15th century. Today's rear, transverse part (court arbor) dates from 1430, the front annex protruding onto the market square from 1480. It is adorned with a 24m high display gable, which is basically a pure design element with no technical function. Its elaborate design is an expression of the wealth of the Hanse merchants, who ultimately financed the council system.

    Tangermünde's town hall is one of the most beautiful late medieval buildings in Northern Germany.
    However, it is worth taking a walk through the entire old town of Tangermünde with its many well-preserved and renovated half-timbered houses. Just explore the little streets and you will discover many beautiful houses, courtyards and viewpoints.
    It is also worth making a detour to the harbor, from where you have a great view of the historic city wall.

    The story of the historical Grete Minde was passed on with the help of Theodor Fontane, who had written a novella about Grete. It deals with the story of a young woman who, out of disappointment and hatred, set Tangermünde on fire and caused endless suffering. In 1619 Grete Minde was executed for this act. The monument to Grete Minde - a life-size bronze sculpture by Lutz Gaede - is located behind the historic town hall. The figure of a standing, stooped young woman, with her feet and hands in chains, was inaugurated in 2009. The fate of Grete Minde is a gruesome example of the raging of the Christian justice of the time.

    At the time of economic boom in the 15th century, the late Gothic town hall building with its 24 m high gable was built under the sign of the Hanseatic League. He is assigned to the architect Hinrich Brunsberg from Szczecin.
    The city history museum is located in the basement and on the ground floor of the town hall (1430). Today it shows interesting exhibits on the city's history. Imposing ship models and a timeline illustrate life on and with the Elbe River. One of our registry offices is now in the former council chamber on the upper floor. The adjoining council chamber is one of the most beautiful late medieval rooms of the North German secular architecture and is reminiscent of the Prussian religious architecture. The way to the upper floor leads via the outside staircase and the arcade.
    The extension from the 19th century was built according to plans by the Berlin builder Friedrich August Stüler, a student of Karl Friedrich Schinkel.

    The street scene in Kirchstrasse is largely determined by half-timbered houses from the 17th century and more recently. Some of them show remarkable forms of jewelry. House number 23 with its rich flat carvings is one of the most beautiful half-timbered houses in Tangermünde.

    The life-size bronze sculpture shows Gretel Minde in a stooped position and in chains.

    Her sad story was passed on by Theodor Fontane, who wrote a short story about Grete. It deals with the story of a young woman who is said to have set Tangermünde on fire out of both disappointment and hatred. In 1619 Grete Minde was wrongly tortured and executed for this act.
