The town hall is one of the most beautiful buildings in Heilbronn. It was rebuilt in old style in the early 1950s. The original was constructed in 1417 in Gothic style and enlarged in Ranaissance style in 16th century. The colorful facade originated from the years 1579/80, as well as the astronomical and moon phase clocks by Isaak Habrecht. In front of the town hall is located the market square on which three times a week the local marked is held.
This landmark of Heilbronn is dedicated to the patron saint of the vine dresser St. Kilian. The church ws constructed in the 15th century. It's octagonal tower was the first tower in Renaissance style north of the Alps.
The interior is decorated in Late Gothic style.
One of the last remainings of the old city fortification. This tower was built in 1392 in the southwest corner of the city wall. In 1519 Götz von Berlichingen, an imperial knight, called the German Robin Hood, had to spend one night as prisoner in the tower.
The Deutschhof had been used since the 13th century as residence. Today it is used as centre for culture and as museum of town history. It also hosts a school for adult education, an archive and a youth club. The tower on the photo belongs to the Deutschorden Cathedral "St. Peter and Paul".
