The Story of the Straubinger Rathaustaler

Straubing is a city in Bavaria (Lower Bavaria) with a long history.

In 1382, the municipality purchased the Gothic trading house, which was then converted into the town hall (with a historical council chamber behind the Gothic window façade). The three-storey building underwent drastic alterations in the 19th century, when the Gothic gable was demolished (1826) and the neo-Gothic façade erected (1893). 

The early visitors, the first “tourists” of the 19th century were enthusiastic about the beauty of Straubing. The town’s position on the Danube, the vast town square full of colourful live, the varied churches and historical monuments fascinate visitors even today. 

The historic part of town hall burned  down on 25th of November 2016. In an effort to support the rebuilding of the town hall Jürgen Seissler had the idea to create and sell the Straubinger Rathaustaler.

A portion of each Straubinger Rathaustaler, 15 Euro,  supports the rebuilding of the town hall.
