An interesting building architecturally. Reflects its importance as the 'Rauthaus' and has the location in the'Strasse'.

Looks pretty nice, but at the time was half covered! Really easy to reach from central square, worth the visit!

Inside you will find a detailed model of Bielefeld how it looked in 1650. Between the old Town hall and the new extension you will find the sculpture "Passione per l’arte” by Sandro Chià
