The Altes Rathaus (Old Town Hall) was built in 1470 on the site of the first Munich town hall (built 1310). The plans were designed by Jörg von Halsbach - the same person responsible for the Frauenkirche.
Underneath the tower is a gate, where many people pass unknowningly every day, which was in medieval times the entrance into the walled city of Munich.
The Rathaus was extensively damaged during World War 2, but was rebuilt in the 1970's to the same state as in 1474.
Today the tower serves as the Spielzeugmuseum (Toy Museum). It stands beside the new Munich town hall, which houses the famous Glockenspiel. Its convenient city center location makes it easy to visit as a side trip to many other nearby attractions such as St Peters Church, Alte Peter, the Hofbräuhaus and the Frauenkirche.
