The Rathaus dates back to 1694 and was the seat of the government till 1798. It is built on the Limmat River and the current structure replaced a 13th century court house. The town hall is maintained beautifully although visitors are rarely allowed inside. The ceilings are paneled and beautiful paintings adorn it. When the parliament is in session, it is possible to watch the proceedings from the balcony. It is worth enjoying the Renaissance building from the outside as well and if you’re lucky, from the inside.
