The city is home to many historic monuments that have shaped its unique skyline. The Red Town Hall of Berlin (Rotes Rathaus) is the city’s official town hall and has inherited a fascinating chapter of the nation’s history that has sculpted its significance today. The Rathaus is both the home of the governing mayor and the government, housing the Senate of Berlin. It has been constructed from vibrant red clinker bricks, which gives it its iconic name. The spectacular town hall was built in the mid-to-late nineteenth century, in 1869 to evoke the style of the north Italian High Renaissance movement. It drew its inspiration from the Old Town Hall of Torun (which is now Poland), and the tower’s architecture draws from the cathedral tower of the Notre Dame de Laon in France. It was built to replace several buildings that had been around since the middle ages, and now occupies an entire city block in splendour. After suffering extensive damage due to Allied bombing in WW2, it was rebuilt according to the original plans between 1951 and 1956. After the reunification of Germany, the administration of Berlin officially moved to the Rathaus on 1 October 1991. It is a splendid testament to Germany’s political administration and cultural determination, and it is well worth a visit when one is in the capital.
