The Rathaus in Hamburg

The Hamburg Rathaus is the city hall of Hamburg. It was built from 1886 to 1897, but was destroyed in a fire in 1842. It took almost 44 years to build a new one. Construction was completed in 1897 and cost about 80 million euros. Wow!
During World War II, the city was severely damaged by British Royal Air For bombs on July 23, 1943. Reconstruction was completed in 1957.
All the photos below are taken in and around the Rathaus.
