Town hall of Bonn

Town hall of Bonn, Germany

Unfortunately it was pretty rainy during my visit in Bonn. I got a nice photo of the town hall though. Many years ago I watched a ‘Rathaussturm’ here. Have you already heard about this carnival tradition? At the end of the carnival period the carnival revellers supported by a female guard ‘take over the power’ at the town hall for a few days.

Town hall of Retz

Town hall of Retz, Austria

The very special town hall of Retz: Originally built as a church it turned into the office of the mayor after some war destruction. The most interesting detail is beneath the town hall: A huge wine cellar system named Retzer Erlebniskeller!
