The town hall, whose origins date back to the 11th century, is located directly on the fish market. The town hall was first mentioned in 1275 and was considered the political centerpiece of the medieval metropolis in Erfurt. Today, the seat of the city administration is located in the neo-gothic building.

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.

Not as old as it looks, but a nice piece of neo-gothic. Built in 1869, it stands on the old square of the historic predecessor building, first mentioned in 1275. Worth seeing: The Council Chamber.

The town hall is located directly on the fish market in the neo-Gothic style. It is the seat of the administration and a very impressive building. One should take the time to grasp the many details with the eyes. Unfortunately, I don't know if you can also visit it from the inside as a tourist.

The dominant structure of the fish market is the neo-Gothic town hall. It was built between 1869 and 1875 according to plans by August Thiede and Theodor Sommer at the same location as the old town hall.
The historical wall and ceiling paintings inside the town hall are particularly impressive and interesting.

The oldest buildings belonged to the 13th century. Parts, including the large hall, were demolished in 1830, further parts were demolished in 1865/66, and the remaining parts in 1870, including the mighty tower.The main parts of today's town hall were built between 1870 and 1875. In 1904/05 the east wing was extended, a second staircase and the city council meeting room (council meeting room) were built. The complex was closed in 1934/35 with the construction of the south building and the savings bank building.(erfurt.de/ef/de/erleben/sehenswertes/rathaus/index.html)

The town hall has a ballroom that was designed by the history painter Johann Peter Theodor Janssen and shows pictures of Erfurt's history and that of Martin Luther. In the ballroom (until 1920) the town's golden book and a cup of honor were exhibited. The Golden Book was created in 1900 by the Berlin court goldsmiths Sy and Wagner on the occasion of a visit to Erfurt by Kaiser Wilhelm II. It was taken to Moscow as a trophy by the Red Army in 1945 and never returned to Erfurt. The former Golden Book has been replaced by "Guest Books" (in a red cover).The richly painted staircases are freely accessible to the public and show works by Eduard Kaempffer from the years 1889/96. In addition to scenes from the Faust and Tannhäuser saga, stories of Count von Gleichen are also depicted.Since November 1876, there have been statues of Emperor Friedrich I (Barbarossa/Red Beard) and Emperor Wilhelm I (Barbablanca/White Beard) on the front of the town hall, on both sides of the town hall balcony, as symbols of the “re-establishment of the German Reich”. They were made of Kelheim limestone by Professor Georg Kugel. The two 2.80 meter high statues under elaborate canopies are said to have been thrown off their pedestals and shattered on July 4, 1945, shortly after the Red Army marched into Erfurt. However, the Erfurt city archive contains the minutes of a meeting of the Erfurt city council on June 6, 1950, which states: "The figures above the entrance to the town hall at the festival hall are to be removed". A representative of the Lord Mayor Georg Boock also signed. The former locations of the emperor statues remained empty for decades. As a donation from the Erfurt Rotary Club, bronze figures of Boniface and Martin Luther were placed in their place in June and November 2017.Source: Wikipedia
