The Rotes Rathaus is Berlin’s red city hall, seat of the Mayor and the Federal State Government. It is located in the street Rathausstraße, in the Mitte district. Its facade was built using red bricks and that is where the name comes from.

The Berliner Rathaus, which occupies a whole square, was built between 1861 and 1869 to substitute previous medieval constructions. Designed by the architect Hermann Friedrich Waesemann, its renaissance style was taken from northern Italy. Its tower resembles those of the Laon Cathedral, in France.

Damaged during the Second World War, the Rotes Rathaus was the city council of Eastern Berlin during the 1950’s, while western Berlin had the Rathaus Schöneberg. In 1991, after the German reunification, the whole administration was transferred to the Rotes Rathaus where it remains till nowadays.
