There was a lot going on around here on our visit and I very nearly didn't notice the serpent wrapped around the columns of this building.

What sets this one apart from the others are the turrets on the backside of the building that is not facing the square - it is definitely different looking compared to other pink town halls.

This is a beautiful historic building and very photogenic. But after you take your pictures of the exterior, take a few minutes to step inside for displays about the history of Rostock, and a model of the old city. Clean public bathrooms too!
