The first Town Hall was built in 1450, in the Jewish quarter, this building was soon too small and so in 1550 a new town hall was built in the Renaissance style in it’s present position on the main square. This building was kept very simple and only at the corners decorated with ornaments. At that time it also housed the main station and a prison on the third floor. In 1803 the building was demolished and a new building was built between 1805-1807 in neoclassical style replaced the former building, designed by Christoph Stadler.

Further extension of the town hall began in 1869, in 1887 a design by architects Alexander Weilemans and Theodore Reuter was put forward, but this included parts of the old building. For the full expansion several of the neighbouring buildings needed to be purchased, but the owners of Landhausgasse 6 and 8 successfully defended themselves against the demolition, the plans could not be implemented fully.
