unfortunately, you can not freely visit inside of the building. Only with a guide or on special occasions you can visit the inside. You can see some paintings and a perfect example of 'flemish renaissance' (or so the guide said). I think it is worth a visit for people who know something about flemish history and or flemish politcians.

Located in the town centre square. Magnificent building - very similar in style to the Town Hall in Brussels. Lots of restaurants and cafes in the area.

The Town Hall is located right in the City Centre in the Grote Market and is among the many attractions that make Grote Market so vibrant and interesting. The town Hall is over 450 years old and one has to just look and wonder at the gorgeous architecture. Definitely worth a visit when in Grote Market.

The building and the Guild houses were on the my favorites attractions in this city. Plus the area is nice, with dozens of restaurant option and a nice atmosphere. Give the dinner options and other architectural places to see, I consider this area as a place to visit more than once, when staying in the city

It's a place you can't miss when you want to visit Antwerp. Wonderful building, sometimes decorated with flags but also in Christmas period... beautifully decorated with lights!

This townhall was built around 1560 and has seen many revolutions in it's time - it is built in a combination of Flemish and Italian rennaissance style and it is grand. Whilst not open to the public except for once a year in August, it stands memorial to many years of service to the city and as a proud focal... More

We only had the opportunity to experience the building from the outside. The colorful flags and the large square in front with the fountain statue make this quite picturesque.
