Long Description:

The Würzburg City Hall is not a single complex, but a group of buildings originally with different purposes and from different times. A municipal Council is first mentioned in 1256 in Würzburg. The citizens were heavily involved in the administration of the city and in 1316 the Mayor and Council acquired Grafeneckart, a visible sign of the bourgeois struggle for independence against the episcopal ruler.

The building was originally the seat of a bishop's official and has a Romanesque tower and the hall of Wenceslas from the 13 Century, the oldest secular space of the city.

Today the Grafeneckart is the oldest part of the town hall, which has steadily expanded over the centuries.
