    The Altes Stadthaus during the Festival of Lights.

The Alte Stadthaus (Old City Hall) was once the meeting place of the city council. Today, it is the seat of the Berlin Senate Department for the Interior.

The Altes Stadthaus in Berlin-Mitte was built between 1902 and 1911 as an extension to the Red Town Hall. After World War II, the towered building designed by city architect Ludwig Hoffmann became the seat of the Council of Ministers of the GDR. After reunification, it was proposed to Helmut Kohl as the Federal Chancellery. Kohl declined, preferring a new building in the Tiergarten. These days, the building is the seat of the Senate Department for the Interior.
