A building I really like, is the Altes Stadthaus right next to the Rotes Rathaus.
It was built after the Rotes Rathaus proved to be too small. So Berlin has in fact two main city halls.

this is a former administrative building of the east german government. today it hosts a private university




this is the only part of the old city castle which survived the demolitions (after WW2). it was kept because from this balcony the first german republic was declared in 1918

Our actual Town Hall doesn't have any administrative role, but the city administration buildings are very much restricted to the public, that's why I asked.

Keep up the updates!

I've heard, apart from the statues, it's actually a copy. And soon were going to have another copy of this part.

Ah - communism with a heart. So do the unlucky people outside the 'heart shape' have to suffer in the dark?
