The historic medieval building of the Rostock Town Hall in Germany stands along the city’s Neuer Markt and was originally a composite of two town houses dating back to the 13th century, which still make up the core of the rectangular structure. Today, it stands as the oldest preserved secular building in the city, and much like the town halls of both Lübeck and Stralsund, although lacking an inner courtyard, it is one of the most important secular brick Gothic buildings in the entire Baltic region. Each of these two original houses, now largely covered by baroque fronts, are still recognizable from the outside by the two gabled roofs. The latest expansion took place between 2010 and 2012 by integrating the two original houses with another historic building in the Neuer Markt.
