Very interesting with fascinating history

The town hall is now open to the public and it is very interesting with a fascinating history - well worth popping in for a look and listen

This is a really interesting Town Hall located on the Antwerp Grote Market. The Market Square is the place to spend and relaxing time in one of their many out door café and bistros. Enjoy a nice Belgium beer and watch the people go by. Many nice restaurants in the area.

The town hall opened his doors for his 450 years anniversary. The guide let us seen the town hall from the cellar till the balcony. It was really interesting to see all these paintings, lovely rooms and explanations. The guided tour is already for months sold out.

Its a wonderful place to be on earth, amidst beautiful and colorful buildings, relaxing atmosphere - simply to enjoy the world heritage. Place is surrounded by cafes, restaurants. Probably there are events taking place in this area - so those planning trip here should plan their itinerary according to those events - which would probably make it more enjoyable.

We didn't go in the hall but the exterior is very nice. It is situated on the west side of the square, which has several alleys that house numerous cafes, bars and restaurants. It's a very nice area for walking and taking photos.

Unfortunately the time of year that we travelled to Antwerp the main part of the Town Hall was not open although the small part we did see was worth seeing splendid decorations.

The town hall is without doubt a fine heritage building decorated with flags from many nations. In front is the famous statue of the roman soldier who defeated a legendary giant. Great statue and photo op !

Great that it was free and entry and worth a look, but the exhibition and history is only in Dutch, so wasn't very captivating!

One of the most beautiful medieval town squares I've been to in Belgium or the Netherlands. The baroque Brado fountain is impressive and always has scads of children climbing all over, and tourists lined up for "selfies". The town hall is flying flags of all nations.....although sadly, only a NZ flag not the Aussie! Just love the gorgeous flower boxes,... More
