    The Old Town Hall is considered an outstanding example of Gothic brick architecture.

    In the middle of the 15th century the council and writing rooms were first created. Later, between 1470 and 1480, the main building with the tower was built. Until the unification of the two Brandenburg cities in 1715, the town hall was the administrative center of the old town. After that, it lost its role as an administrative center and thus became less important. In the further eventful history, the rooms of the town hall were used as a barch factory (until 1803), as a warehouse, as a warehouse and as a grain store (until 1819).

    The Old Town Hall with the Roland is the administrative center of the Havelstadt.
    In the middle of the 15th century, the council and writing rooms were first created.
    The main building with the tower was built between 1470 and 1480. Until the unification of the two Brandenburg cities in 1715, the town hall was the administrative center of the old town.

    After that, it lost its role as an administrative center and thus lost importance. In the further eventful history, the rooms of the town hall were used as a barch factory (until 1803), as a warehouse, as a warehouse and as a grain store (until 1819).

    At the decision of the Prussian-royal government, the expansion of the Old Town Hall to the regional and city courts was decided and in 1819 it was handed over for a few decades. After the town hall was sold to the garrison in 1863, the buildings were used as clothing stores and detention cells. With the deterioration of the structural condition, the town hall became a ruin and had to be vacated in 1904 due to dilapidation. Demolition was imminent. It was not until 1910, after the town bought back the old town hall, that the reconstruction (until 1912) was decided in today's view.

    Particularly noteworthy is the paneled gable with the coat of arms of old town council families on the front side of the old town hall, the main portal with head images of four city personalities from the 15th and 16th centuries, and Roland from 1474 to the right of the main portal.
