Main Town Hall, fireplace mantle

Main Town Hall was originally built in 1298 and functioned as an office of the Hanseatic League. Work on the current building began in 1327. Today it houses the municipal museum, which we decided to visit on our last morning in town.

This was the fireplace in the winter chamber. I guess that very ornate chamber in the other pictures got too cold in what must be a brutal winter.
