as a building for representative

purposes for the city council

The 55-meter-tall tower is visible from a number of spots in the city. The tower is actually older than the building proper as it was built in the twelfth century as part of Munich's fortifications.

Viktualienmarkt The Maypole in the centre carries figurettes displaying the trades and crafts of this part of Munich. Maypoles date from the ages of general illiteracy and served to represent a village or later, as in this case, a borough and its trades to travelling salesmen or travelling craftsmen looking for a new master to learn from
