LA city hall has stood in for the Daily Planet in the original Superman TV show. It was destroyed by aliens in the original War of the Worlds movie and is on the badges in the old Dragnet TV show as well. I'm not sure how many of these have gotten over to blighty but LA city hall is pretty well known around the world.

Leuven City Hall is really lovely.

I will post some photos of german city halls. Some german cities also have (former) city halls in the suburbs. At least in Hamburg and Berlin they are still functioning as administration buildings of the respective boroughs. For sake of readability I will post only one picture of the primary city hall of a city tough.

Berlin:



Hamburg


The tower is 112m tall. And the rooms are packed with so much riches that one could think he is in a royal palace.


Munich


the tower is 85m high and hosts Europe's fifth-biggest carillon.


Frankfurt



Cologne



Hanover



Bremen



Stuttgart



Dresden



Leipzig



Essen


106m tall.


Nuremberg



Dortmund



Düsseldorf



Duisburg


The townhall is the building on the right half of the picture.
