Picture of the day
Ayuntamiento Rojo, Berlín, Alemania, 2016-04-22, DD 37-39 HDR.jpg
Moonlight view of the Rotes Rathaus (Red City Hall), town hall of Berlin, capital of Germany. The building is home to the governing mayor and the government of the Federal state of Berlin. While the building is modelled on the Old Town Hall of Toruń (today Poland), the tower is reminiscent of the cathedral tower of Notre-Dame de Laon (France). The town hall was built between 1861 and 1869 and rebuilt to the original plans between 1951 and 1956 after the severe damages during the Allied bombing in World War II.
