Town hall of Zell (Mosel)

Our town hall - central contact point for citizens and guests

The town hall of the town of Zell (Mosel) is a multifunctional building and - at the latest since the conversion and modernization in the years 2003 to 2005 - a focal point for politics, culture and tourism. It is home to the mayor's office, Zeller Land Tourismus GmbH, the wine and local history museum, the city library and event rooms. This makes it a central contact point not only for our citizens, but also for the numerous guests of our beautiful Moselle town.

Directly in front of the town hall is the market square of the town of Zell (Mosel) with the "Zeller-Schwarze-Katz" fountain and the wine lounge. Young and old meet here to celebrate one of the many festivals in our wine town or simply to get together.
