Weather Station Behind the City Hall

Roland: The soldiers told me that the stagecoach did not leave the city this morning because one of its wheels had broken. There’s only one other way to find out.

The weather station will celebrate its 120th anniversary in 2018. It is such a tiny addition to the Town Hall but at the time hardly anyone had a thermometer at home, so it must have been visited frequently. The station was built by a German meteorological expert, W. Lamrecht.
