The New Town Hall, also known as the Red Town Hall was erected in the years 1875-1879, according to the design by Konrad Kruhl, a city planner from Szczecin. The building draws on Gothic style. It was erected on an escarpment and is of rectangular plan. There are avant-corpses near the corners of the building and in its central part from the side of Batorego Square. From the east, there is a terrace and double stairs – the whole was supposed to emphasize the representative functions of the building.
The western entrance is decorated with an arcade portico and sculptures situated on pillars that symbolize “Industry”, “Agriculture”, “Seafaring”, and “Knowledge”. The embellishment of the building also includes balconies and towers. Inside, we can found a cross-ribbed vault and the coat of arms of the city of Szczecin from 1660, which was moved to the Red Town Hall from the old town hall and put up on a wall. The building was the seat of the city’s authorities until 1945.
Nowadays, in the building of the Red Town Hall we can find the Maritime Office, the Polish Chamber of International Trade, the Maritime Council by the Provincial Court, the Maritime Engineering Design Office, and the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management.
The building of the town has been entered into the provincial register of historic monuments in June 1993.
