The New Town Hall in Leipzig has been the seat of the city administration since 1905. It is located on the southwest corner of the inner city ring within sight of the Reichsgericht building, the seat of the Federal Administrative Court. The 114.7 meter high town hall tower is considered the highest in Germany and is one of the city's landmarks. It can be climbed as part of a guided tour.

And yet the building is reminiscent of the medieval stronghold where, in July 1519, the Leipzig disputation between Martin Luther and the challenger Dr. Johannes Eck took place. Luther, along with Melanchthon, fearlessly defended his views on the Reformation.
