The New Town Hall (German: Neues Rathaus) has stood on the Domshof in the centre of Bremen, Germany since 1913. Located behind the Unser-Lieben-Frauen-Kirchhof cemetery, it is adjacent to the older section of the Town Hall with which it forms a harmonious ensemble. Among its sumptuous rooms decorated with local artefacts, the New Town Hall houses the Senate Chamber used by the Senate for its regular meetings and the Great Hall, a venue for official receptions. In 2004, Bremen Town Hall was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, together with the Roland of Bremen.
Between 1819 and 1908, the building known as the Stadthaus supplemented the Town Hall in fulfilling the administrative requirements of the city. It had been built on the site of the Palatium, the archbishop's residence. The Stadthaus was a fairly simple building in the Neo-classical style. It consisted of offices and storage rooms for the municipal administration. In 1818, Bremen had 37,029 inhabitants but by 1904, the population had grown to 206,928. The rather modest building failed to meet the evolving requirements of the city. It lacked office space and was not sufficiently representative of the city's prosperity.

A very beautiful building in the heart of Bremen. A nice photo object. The Bremer Stadtmusikanten statue outside the town hall is also very popular among the tourist. Earlier we can enter the front side of the building. There's also a guided tour around the charming rooms. You can see the schedule on their website or on Bremer tourist information website.

It was absolutely beautiful! This part of Bremen is historical and lovely. Very worth going to see. The history to Bremen is deep and fantastic!

Superb architecture in medieval style. The streets, the town hall and the sculpture of four musicians seem like a scene out of a fairy tale

A fine building but the visit ruined by nasty unpleasant guides. The interiors are moderately interesting but the outside is excellent. Better to save your €s and enjoy the exterior without paying to be abused by the staff.
