Beautiful building covered by world flags, it's not easy to miss it. There is not much to say about it, it makes a good spot to make photos I guess.

This building is really beautiful with a great architecture. Located facing the Grote Markt, it makes it perfect to have a relaxing time in front of the Town Hall in a clear sunny day, enjoying the beauty of the building as well as the sun. To make it perfect, the entrance of the building is free. You can go inside... More

Free to visit with a good overview of its history. It's an impressive building inside and worth a visit. Situated in the Grote Markt.

Like any other Town Centers with Town Hall in Belgium, nothing special. Good to take photos but beware of the horrible and unfriendly Japanese Tourist who are not willing to give the time of the day if you ask. It was disappointing that they act this way.

This building sits on the main square and dominates it as a sign of the prestige this city must have has in the past. Sit awhile at one of the cafes in the square and watch the tourists.

On a recent trip to Antwerp, i had a few hours to kill, so i strolled into the central square, and sat and stared at this building. It has many intestesting features, from the fountain outside, to the small carvings and statues.

We thoroughly enjoyed this unique building with all its artifacts and paintings. You must check in with security but getting in free was a pleasant surprise.

The fountain that used to be on this monument seems to have been replaced by a flowered grass area. The Town Hall itself is a beautiful building despite no flags flying when we visited. Stop and wonder how the detail was constructed so carefully.

This central area in Antwerp not only has the city hall, but also the incredible guild houses and, of course, the statue depicting what may be the source of Antwerp's namesake! The buildings are amazing and as a central plaza, there always seems to be something going on.
