Old Town Hall, a late Gothic building constructed between 1470 and 1480, has been a canvas for various architectural styles as it was remodeled over the centuries. After it was damaged in World War II, the structure was finally restored to its original Gothic style. Be sure to look up in the ballroom to see the ornate wooden ceiling. Also look for the copies of the famous Morris Dancers and sculptures of Erasmus Grasser. A toy museum with history toys and games is tucked into the building, too.

Old Town Hall reviews
The Old Town Hall looks rather new and well maintained as compared to the new Rathaus on Marienplatz. An interesting building to look at. more »
Quite an interesting looking building in the Marianplatz. It looks like it is also a museum but we didn't have time to go in. It looked like a toy museum. It is still an interesting looking building..... more »
In general, it is a sightly building with simple old architecture. If it would stand somewhere far from the center, I would not advise to go somewhere specifically for its sake. But since it stands in the very center next to the new town hall, you must take at least five minutes to look at this building and evaluate the architecture of that time in another representative of it.
Pretty building that houses a sweet toy museum. Not very big but crammed with cool toys from the Victorian era and earlier, up to the mid 50s/60s. Lots of signage in English, which was very welcome and some cool displays if bears and dolls and wooden toys showing how they were made. My five year old enjoyed it, despite how hot it was inside. Note there is a lift to the top but it can get very cramped and the stairs are narrow so no strollers and not great for the less mobile.
