The yellow and red building takes up one side of the Marktplatz. It is important for tourists because it houses the tourist information center. In front of the town hall, there is a statue on a column in the middle of a fountain. There are...More

This was a convenient place to stop to use the ladies room. There happened to be a young couple getting married there and they had a large group of friends/family holding roses, waiting for them outside.

A good one like many other Rathaus places in the country. Surrounded by many shops and restaurants. Importantly very active even on weekends

The Rathaus itself is fairly nondescript, so I doubt many would want to visit it for it own sake, but it does stand at the east end of the Marktplatz, and that square is worth visiting for the other sights and features filling the square.

It's a beautiful building located in the market square in the heart of beautiful old college town Heidelberg.

Another building in Heidelberg's altstadt which is sadly quite plain for the area and a German Rathaus. It is currently operating as the tourist information office.

The Heidelberg town hall is really basic...Nothing fancy or special. It's too bad regarding the gorgeous rest of the city!

The Heidelberg Rathaus was built in the 18th century and justly holds down one side of the heritage Marktplatz. The Rathaus is not only for admiring. It is also useful. The tourist office is housed here.
