The unknown architect, who let the old townhall built in 1717, already knew that the basalt of mayen would be the ideal ressource for building a monument. Also highlighting the window fronts.
The entrance also leaves an memorable impression. Four halfround designed steps lead to the portal, framed by massive pillars which is similar to the entrance of the Genoveva Castle which was created by Ravenstein.
The city coat of arms is above the entrance. Above that the balcony with a beautiful parapet which is stabelized by a corbel. The square clock tower is located on the attic floor. It has a octagonal erection and a high sound opening. The hiproof is covered with slate.
The highlight of that side of the old townhall is the artificial designed clock-face.
Furthermore it is a location for weddings.
