The Old Town Hall in Lindau is perhaps the most interesting historic building in the town. The facade, decorated with paintings, a covered staircase leading upstairs, jagged shapes and a beautiful Renaissance door - all this makes it an excellent example of a Gothic building in South Germany. The main construction work was completed in 1422, but later the Town Hall underwent finishing constructing.
From inside the Old Town Hall in Lindau has richly decorated rooms, where the principal citizens of the town still gather. Previously, ancient tomes and manuscripts were kept here, but they were moved to a more reliable and safe place in order not be destroyed by mold and dampness. The Town Hall stands on the main street of Lindau, Maximilianstraße. It is named so in honor of the Roman Emperor Maximilian I, who ordered to open a municipal assembly in the Town Hall building in 1496.
