Old County Hall in Moers, Germany

Protection of a historical monument

The Old County Hall was built in 1898 – 1900 as seat of the district administration in Moers. The building is a listed historical monument, both the outside and the inside of the building are protected.  The Old County Hall has been completely renovated from the basement to the attic over the last two years to preserve the building as a public and a cultural venue. The renovation works will finish in summer 2018. In the course of refurbishment, a comprehensive FOGTEC water mist system implementing automatic nozzles with glass bulb release has been installed, protecting all 5 floors of the historical monument.
