    The old city hall of Leipzig stands with its front opposite the main entrance of the Mädlerpassage and is a beautiful Renaissance building.
    It is also the landmark backdrop for the well-known Leipzig Christmas Market.
    The first town hall building at this point dates from the 14th century.
    Forming for the building was from 1556 Hieronymus Lotter, then mayor of Leipzig, also very well known as a master builder of the Saxon Elector August for his hunting lodge Augustusburg near Chemnitz.

    In 1556, the foundation stone was laid for the "Old Town Hall".
    Since 1909 it has served as a city history museum.
    Currently, the city of Leipzig uses the house among other things for cultural and concert events.

    The Old Town Hall lives up to its name because its foundation stone was laid in 1556. Since 1909 it has served as a city history museum.
    The ballroom in the building is 43 meters long and was formerly used for festivities of the Saxon sovereigns, patrician weddings, handicraft festivals and student balls. Court hearings also took place here. Today it is used, among other things, for cultural and concert events in the city of Leipzig. The market is through the city tunnel

    The Old Town Hall is located directly on the market. Here, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9am to 4pm, there is usually a weekly market with fresh local produce. The market also hosts the Christmas market, the Easter market, the wine festival or the market days.
