Bamberg's1462 Old Town Hall was built on an artificial island in the Regnitz river, to get around the law enacted by the prince-bishop who prevented the citizens of Bamberg to erect a town hall in the territory.

Today the Old Town Hall accommodates the prestigious rococo hall and the Ludwig Collection. The spectacular frescoes painted towards 1755 by Johann Anwander of the exterior of the main building depicting allegorical scenes framed by architectural reasons trompe-l'oeil. A special detail is a continual source of mirth among tourists: the leg of a cherub protudes out of the wall as a sculpture.
