Along with a great deal of Heidelberg, the former Town hall was also destroyed by French troops in 1689. The present Town hall, Rathaus, at the market place was built between 1701-05 in a Baroque style. The balcony (Rococo style) was added in 1751 and shows the coat of arms and monogram of the Elector Carl Theodor. In the course of the years the building was extended by two side-wings that match the style of the main building. On the south side, a niche contains a memorial for the prisoners missing from the last war. Inside the Town hall, different exhibitions take place occasionally.
