The new town hall in Jablonec nad Nisou (the seat of the Municipal Authority) was built in 1931–1932 and it is an excellent example of the functionalist architectural style. In summer, it is possible to head up the town hall tower, which provides an excellent view of the city, or to view meeting rooms which have been reconstructed according to the original designs by the architect Karel Winter. His winning design was selected from a remarkable 177 received submissions. The distinctive rectangular tower (51 m high) and clock have become the dominant feature of the four-storey functionalist structure. On a clear day, it is possible to see the Ještěd Ridge, the Jizera Mountains, the Černá Studnice Ridge, Císařský kámen or Petřín from it. The ascent up the tower includes a possible tour of the meeting rooms, if visitors are interested.
