Its 111m-long north facade is dominated by a huge tower decorated with bronze statues of past German Emperors. The interior contains some 650 different rooms, of which the Bürgersaal, Kaisersaal and Turmsaal are the most opulent. The fantastic Große Festsaal, with its bronze and marble decor, is still used for celebrations. Below the ground, 4,000 oak columns support the building. The town hall is the seat of the senate, the parliament and the government and an important historic symbol of the Free City of Hamburg.
