The town hall (in German: Rathaus) is the seat of the local government of Winden. A city council meets here.[1] The mayor of Winden also works out of this building.

In the 1950s, the coal industry was apparently very influential within the government of Winden, particularly on the mayor. The mayor actively blocked Bernd Doppler's requests for a building permit for his proposed nuclear power plant. It was not until he was threatened at gunpoint in 1954 that the mayor signed the permit.[2] Following the construction of the plant, the coal industry likely has little influence in local politics, while the power plant likely has enormous influence.

It is not known what happens to the building following the apocalypse, but the government it once housed is effectively defunct. After a temporary military occupation during the immediate aftermath of the catastrophe in 2020, roaming bands of survivors, such as Elisabeth Doppler's cult, come to control the area of Winden as late as 2053.[3][4]
