1648 the Westfalian Peace Treaty was announced from the stairs of this town hall. According to legend children of the city rode to the town hall on their hobbyhorses to convince the politicians that they want peace. Nowadays all 4th grade kids in Osnabrück build horses like that and once a year ride to the town hall where the mayor hands out Pretzels. Nice tradition, huh?

While building the cathedral people must have thought 'Wait, this is going to be a bit small' and they decided to make the right tower a bit bigger ;-)
