Also see . . .  Town Hall (Markt Sommerhausen). "The town centre is still surrounded by a largely intact town wall. Right in the middle the town hall is situated, built in 1558 and decorated with a step gable. Its arcades of pointed arches at the street façade used to be salesrooms in former times. Later they were bricked up and today accommodate the tourist office. The assembly hall in the upper floor is a simple but impressive room with deep window recesses and marquetry wall panels. The spacious hallway – also called “Bürgersaal” (‘Citizens’ Hall’) - is decorated with massive beams and a wooden-beamed ceiling. It is also used for wine tastings, receptions, and events."
