This lovely white building (built 1895-98) is located at the southern end of a rectangular site. It was designed by Joseph Brix in the style of the Wilhelmine era. It incorporates the facade of the former Altona railway station, and the side facing the square bears an artistic relief by Ernst Barlach and Karl Garber. A pretty fountain is situated in the middle of the park-like square, which is bordered by further interesting pieces of architecture, such as the Altonaer Museum and the former Youth House. There is an impressive equestrian statue of Wilhelm I in front of the town hall.
