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.
