Ulm´s town hall ("Rathaus") is situated not far from the Minster and is easily recognised by its opulently painted, early renaissance façade. The oldest part of the present building, the main South East building, was built in 1370 as a “new trading house”. It is first mentioned as a town hall in 1419. An elaborate mediaeval astronomical/astrological clock is high up on one of the wall outside.Near the fountain is the Ratskeller restaurant in a calm and greeny square: on the pavement area, you'll find the time to admire the lovely façade with all its colourful painted badges.
Le bâtiment de l'hôtel de ville d'Ulm est si imposant qu'il renferme un restaurant sur l'un de ses flancs, côté fontaine. La façade est richement ornée de peintures murales et de blasons.
