HAMBURG CITY HALL
The Hamburg Rathaus is the city hall of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. It is the seat of the government of Hamburg and as such the seat of one of Germany’s 16 state parliaments. The Rathaus is located on the main market square in the city centre. Built from 1886-1897 in neo-Renaissance style, the city hall still houses its original governmental functions with the office of the First Mayor of Hamburg and the meeting rooms for Hamburg’s parliament and senate. With its 112 meter high tower, it is one of Hamburg’s main landmarks.

HOUSE OF THE PATRIOTIC SOCIETY
(Haus der Patriotischen Gesellschaft)
In 1765 Hamburg’s middle-class intellectuals founded a society for the improvement of the public good, which became known as the Patriotic Society. The Society’s neo-Gothic building, built between 1845 and 1847, is considered one of Hamburg’s most important monuments. It is located in the city centre (3 minutes walking distance from the City Hall) where the former town hall stood until it burnt down in 1842. The history of the Society starts with the rise of the middle classes, where 24 years before the French Revolution, citizens of Hamburg formed a new society in the spirit of enlightenment and egalitarianism, aspiring to improve civil liberties and public welfare.
