View from the Rathaus tower (for groups only)

The city tour does not take place at the moment.

Why is the tower of the Rathaus (Town Hall) not in the centre of the building? What was the builder Ludwig Winter thinking while planning the building? Learn the answers to these questions and many others about the city’s history during the climb up the tower. For a bird’s eye view of Braunschweig, you first have to survive the climb up 161 steps. A lift is not available but the spectacular view is definitely worth the hard work.

During the Braunschweig Christmas Market the sight of the around 150 lovingly decorated and festively illuminated stands around the Cathedral offers a very special experience.
