The Old Town Hall (Altes Rathaus) is a no less interesting attraction. The construction of this architectural monument lasted for more than a hundred years. The oldest part of the town hall has survived till our days even though it was completed in the beginning of the 15th century. Despite the fact that some wings were added to the Old Town Hall much later, the building looks very harmonious. St. Egidio Church is among the most notable religious sights of the city. This church was built during the Middle Ages. In 1943, during the war, the church was seriously damaged, but later it was rebuilt. Today the church is considered a major monument of victims of the bloody war.
Market Church (Marktkirche) is one more interesting sight of the city. You will hear a lot of interesting stories and legends connected with it. The original project of the church was so large and expensive that the construction of the church was frozen several times - the city’s treasury simply ran out of money. According to a legend, the walls of the church became the grave of the famous folk character named Michael – a knight famous for his military heroic deeds.
