… also the birthplace of the rock band Scorpions. Seen here is the Neues Rathaus or New Town Hall. I was quite surprised to know that it is a town hall, given its magnificent and imposing, castle-like appearance in the midst of a park and a water body in front of it. There is an observation platform, 100m high, accessible by an elevator that actually travels in a parabolic path along the dome. Unfortunately I missed both (the elevator ride as well as the view from the top).
