A partial translation: The historic Dettelbach city hallwas built in the period from 1484 to 1512 in late Gothic style, but later repeatedly renovated. It housed not only the Dettelbach city council, but later spaces were built in the passageway to house the city firefighters and slaughter house. Then later the city library was quartered here. The upper floors were used as a school and offices of the city government. From 1986 to 1990, the town hall was subjected to a comprehensive interior and exterior renovation and the interior was restored to its original state…. (Submitted on October 10, 2014.)
