This fairy-tale like tower used to be a 14th century medieval city gate on the second walls of Brussels. Others of its kind have all been destroyed, but this one found use as a prison, customs house, grain store, and even a church at one point. Today it is a museum, part of the Royal Museums for Art and History. The museum’s exhibits are about the history of the building, the history of defending Brussels, a collection of arms and armour, and the role of trade guilds in the city. The cherry on the literal top of the cake is access to the battlements at the top of the tower, from where you may take in some great panorama of Brussels. Also check out the mysterious looking cone shaped room on the roof. Each of these highlights are on a different floor.

Porte De Hal, Brussels Reviews - Write a Review

  • We didn't go inside, but instead walked around the building and the surrounding park areas. Definitely a place to check out. Peaceful sitting areas with benches and lots of trees. There are a ton of people sitting and enjoying the day. There are also quite a few bars and restaurants nearby.

  • While looking for new places to explore in Brussels, found this interesting spot. Not the nicest park area in the city but had some good views.

  • Another interesting place I found just by wandering. Pretty park area with some good places to eat and drink nearby. Again make the effort to walk here and you will be rewarded.

  • One of a beautiful place in Bruselles from the walking distance from Midi Station. And we can see a beautiful surrounding from the top of the tower.

  • Great place to visit regarding Brussel history. English audioguide available
