At the heart of the old town stands the mighty Town Hall which underwent quite a few changes in the past. Events with a great atmosphere taking place at the Town Hall are well worth a visit.
The town bloomed in the time of its construction, which is also reflected in its external design. It is a late-baroque building with the accentuated central axis and large stone portal with the Brežice coat-of-arms and year 1769 on the ground floor. There is also a small balcony with baroque railings and a simple door on the first floor. The roof boasts a triangular element and a dial in the middle.
In written sources it is also referred to as “Magistrat”. It housed a music school from the end of World War 2 to the turn of the millennium, while today the Institute for Entrepreneurship, Tourism and Youth Brežice uses it as the main office for tourist information, multimedia room and to offer local wines and other products. There are two charging points for electric vehicles nearby.
