The town hall in Suhl alone is worth a visit. Pay particular attention to the inscription "Im grünen Wald die rote Stadt, die ein zerschossen' Rathaus hatt" ("In the green forest, the red town that had a shot-up town hall"). Suhl was the scene of fierce fighting throughout the city during the Kapp Putsch in 1920. The main church, St. Marien, is probably one of the best-preserved Protestant rococo churches in Germany and was built over 500 years ago as Suhl's first church.
