This area of Antwerp is very pleasing. It has some lovely cafés and overwhelming architecture. Can't beat sitting sipping a beverage here and taking in the sights. Life is good.

Good atmosphere in this square around the Town Hall, which is pristine, very glittery! The coffee shops and restaurants around the square are worth a visit to this historic location.

The free exhibition allows an insight into the history of this building. If you then enjoy a coffee in the cage upstairs you get to see some of the amazing architecture. Definitely worth the time.

The exterior looks beautiful, but I don't have the chance to go inside. Currently they're holding an exhibition, but you can't enter without invitation.

The exhibition in the city hall shows the history of the hall, from planning, building to modification and renovation. Although all the descriptions on the wall are Flemish, you can get english leaflet from the receptionist. One interactive screen explains all details of the hall is especially informative.

Our Town Hall is one of the most beautiful in Belgium. It is still used by the mayor and his staff. It is 450 years old. It is always beautifully decorated, especially with Christmas.

The Stadhuis is a beautiful old building set on a beautiful square with lots of nearby activity. I stopped in to see the paintings of Baron Henri Leys as my son is a descendant of his and his family asked me to check it out for them. I was very disappointed that I could not actually get in to see... More

I recommend seeing this square in summer when you can have a beer on the terraces surrounding the square and learn about where the name Antwerp came from as the statue of the legend will be right in front of your eyes.

Definitely worth a visit to this beautiful building. Lots of places to eat and drink close by. This building gives you a real feel for the city.

The Christmas market is fabulous. The sights, sounds, and joy was better than in Brussels or Durbuy. Looking down on the city of Antwerp from the ferris wheel was enchanting. Don't forget to eat some spek patatje (bacon potatoes) and gluhwein (mulled wine). Don't miss Antwerp's Town Hall during the festive season!
