Town Hall - Review

Completed in 1420, this city hall is one of Brussel's most beautiful buildings. The architecture is Gothic. Pay attention to the facade and all the allegorical sculpture that adorns it. The most eye-catching element is the tower, a 96 meter high Brabantine Gothic spire that starts out square but becomes octagonal as it rises.

Back in 1695, the Duke of Villeroi heavily bombed the tower and most of its interior caught fire and was razed. The tower was built even larger than before and all the art and decorations inside were replaced. Today it has some of the city's finest fine arts and decorative arts collections, sculptures, paintings, and tapestries.

The only way to view the town hall is by guided tour, which are provided in multiple languages, including English. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Brussels itinerary 2 days.

  • Great historical building with really interesting history. You ll notice that the building is not symmetrical. I suggest you to go with someone that actually know the history behind the building (tour guide or even your local friend) or you can google it too.

  • Very nice building both from architectural and attention to details perspective. Worth seeing both during the day and after sunset.

  • Beautiful and ancient city hall. It's possible to visit it or you can simply admire it's fabulous facade from the Grand Place.

  • Did the tour in English (you can buy tickets at the tourist information located to the right from the entrance) and absolutely loved it! The guide was excellent, funny and smart, I've learned a lot - and the rooms are simply magnificent! Definitely something to recommend.

  • Very nice place in the town especially at the night time... people enjoying the place setting on the ground
