The Hamburg Rathaus
Now this is not a house full of rats! Rathaus is the German word for Town Hall. We got off the bus and did a tour of the Town Hall...(it was recommended to us by our friends Chris and Jana) WOW what an amazing building! We were told it has 6 more rooms than Buckingham Palace. The current government have council chambers etc in there. They have balls and functions 3-4 nights a week in the grand ballroom. the rooms that we saw were magnificent. So much attention to detail. Here is part of the Rathaus...it was too big to get it all in the view of my camera. There was a market in the front of the Rathaus obstucting my view.
