Create an itinerary including Old Town Hall
One of the city's oldest buildings and long a nexus of local administration, Old Town Hall today serves as an integral section of the historical city center. While the hall itself grew from an amalgamation of buildings during the 15th century, its clock tower has stood since the late 1300s. Access the complex from the capital's main square and admire its mix of colors and architectural styles ranging from Gothic to Baroque to Neo-Renaissance. You can enter the building, the site of the city museum, and explore the chapel, which features a host of intricately painted walls. Be sure to make your way up the clock tower in order to enjoy a sweeping view over the surrounding rooftops. Start your trip to Bratislava by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • This old building is quite nice. It’s a museum inside and you can walk to the top of the clock tower and look over the whole town. It takes a little time unless you are in great shape and it was...

  • Just like the other buildings in the old town Bratislava, this is a beautiful one. However, the town hall has its perk with Napoleon’s cannon ball.

  • This tower is a part of the Old Town Hall sitting in the middle of the old Bratislava City. Near by the Main square (In Slovak Hlavné námestie). The Tower is a part of the tour of the old town hall - the historical building. Actually it is a tour of the City Museum and the City museum is sitting there in the historical building of the old town hall. It is interesting Building because from the inside with interieriors and decorations is looks more like a castle. Also the inside large centre square with architecture language look more like a castle and with the Tower made even stronger that impression. Indoor many rooms are in a good condition and remain centuries the same with original fresco painting. To get in on the Tower visitor needs purchase a ticket to the City Museum which is cheap and well worth to see large museum with rich Exhibition with a unique artificacts and refreshing a history about the Bratislava city and that Museum has interesting Exhibitions which takes about an hour half and then the Tower visit it takes about half hour get up and enjoy views from the Tower on the St. Matus Cathedral and the Tower of the Cathedral, a view on the Bratislava Castle and a view on the old city of Bratislava around the Old Town Hall. In respect of the Tower itself offer a nice small tour of three floors with Art Tower pictures and surprisely with furniture on the first floor and with bells on the second floor. To get on the Tower'' outdoor view from the third floor in winter season which has remaining open the entry for the view just the door is closed and that a visitor needs to find the door on the third floor and open the door get outdoor and then can walk in circle outside around the tower on the walk side and enjoy really nice views from the tower. I do consider quiet enjoyable the whole trip which is not demanding on time or walking. It is located in close location to the city centre as well. The best way get here is with a tram number four which is operate through the old city centre and the tram stop is call 'Centrum' and from there only two minutes walking get at the Old Town Hall. You can also take a tram number one which takes you to the tram stop call Námestie Ludovita Štúra. Then you can walk to the St. Matúš Cathedral and take a short walk from there less than fifth minutes get to the Main Square where is sitting the Old town hall with the tower. You should also take notice all photographs are in focus on the Tower and photos showing the place around the tower from the views of the Tower of the Old Town Hall of city of Bratislava which is the capital city of Slovakia.
  • It's a lovely building in a lovely square. The atrium in the center of the building looks like a movie set. Its interior is equally charming. Visit it!
