  • Leipzig New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus) is the seat of the Leipzig city administration since 1905. It stands within the Leipzig's "ring road" on the southwest corner opposite the city library at Martin-Luther-Ring. The main tower is, at 114.8 meters, the tallest city hall tower in Germany. In 1897 the architect and city building director of Leipzig Hugo Licht was awarded the job of designing it. The foundation stone of the New Town Hall was laid on 19 October 1899 The town hall features as a backdrop in the Alfred Hitchcock film Torn Curtain. The Deputy Mayor of Leipzig and his wife and daughter, who committed suicide as American troops were entering the city on 20 April 1945.
  • Came here for research purposes. Conducted pressure measurements from the top of the tower. The town hall in itself is beautiful from both the inside and the outside. Sadly the paternoster lift was out of order. The view from the top is great.
