From the Old Town market, the Old Town Hall in Brandenburg on the Havel shows in full beauty with its ornamental gables in the finest late Gothic brick art. The building was built around 1430 and served as city administration and market hall. The tower, which originally housed the Courthouse, the prison, the armory and the city archives, towers like a church tower in the sky. When the Old and New Towns were united in 1715, the Brandenburg administration moved into the (no longer preserved) town hall of the Neustadt. After centuries of misappropriation and a rescue by Karl Friedrich Schinkel and other redevelopment work, it is today again the seat of the Brandenburg mayor.
