Town Hall of Hilversum

During the Second World War the Headquarters of the Wehrmacht in the Netherlands were located in the Town Hall of Hilversum. The town hall was then (temporarily) moved to another well-known building, namely Hotel Gooiland. The tower of the Town Hall was in those days shrouded by camouflage material by the German occupiers.
