Cologne’s historic city hall was built in 1569 and is one of the most typical Renaissance buildings. It is listed in almost all art history dictionaries. The tower of the Cologne City Hall was built between 1407 and 1414. As a symbol of its city rule, its five-story building, with a total height of 61 meters, became the first secular "high-rise building" in Cologne.
Cologne City Hall is a historic building in Cologne, western Germany. It is located near HoheStraße in the Innenstadt district, between the Rathausplatz and Alter Markt squares. It houses part of the city government departments, including the city council and the office of the mayor.
I originally planned to go to the Perfume Museum in Cologne. When I navigated to the neighborhood, it turned out that the City Hall of Cologne is near the Perfume Museum, so I stopped by. The city hall of Cologne was destroyed during World War II and later rebuilt. The buildings here are a combination of many different styles and are very distinctive. It is free to visit here, and you can observe the ancient architectural history here.
Originally, the Cologne Carnival was best written in the Alter Markt, but I only found the town hall on the old market square, so just write it here. The Old Market Square and the Town Hall are the main venues for the opening ceremony of the Cologne Carnival. The grandest carnival in all of Germany. It opens on the old market square at 11:11 on November 11 every year. From now on it has entered the "fifth season". The cold and gloomy winter lasted until the second year. In the lively and cheerful environment at the end of February, it seems hard to find a trace of myself. The origin of the Germanic carnival is indeed to celebrate the winter solstice and drive away the vicious winter devil with carnivals. I was fortunate enough to participate in an opening, and equipped with a self-portrait artifact, I successfully captured some images of happy crowds. Whenever I watch it again, I am still happy and greasy, and I will no longer smell the urination in the streets and alleys at the scene. Taste, everyone can drink beer in pubs and streets without leaving their hands, how can there be queues in public toilets... Unfortunately, my face is under-smeared, and it is obvious that I went by the sidelines. The Cologne Carnival featured the climax and feature of cutting the tie at the Women's Carnival in February, but it was a pity that it was not there to see it.
The Cologne City Hall is not far from the cathedral. When I got there, a couple was registering their marriage. Even the pet dog wore a bow tie. It was a sense of ceremony. The city hall was destroyed by the bombing during World War II and was not completely restored. Part of it was rebuilt and part of it was built into a modern-style building. It is said that the old part that has been preserved is still very beautiful. Unfortunately, I didn't do enough homework, so I didn't look at it.
