Originally, perhaps as early as the 11th century, a purchase and assembly house stood in its place. So Rathaus it is first mentioned in writing in 1275. Until 1581 it developed into a spacious building complex. In the years 1705/06 a new, last wing cultivation was added. Thus the old town hall took up the same area as the today's building. In 1830, part of the old town hall was demolished without any compelling reason just because the roof was damaged.
