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.

Every year, the week with August 15, the City Hall has "open doors". It is absolutely recommended to seize the oportunity to visit it. There is only one floor shown 'het schoon verdiep' ('the clean floor') which holds the most important rooms. It's a visited guide, the guides do it in dutch language with Antwerp tongue sometimes... This does 't... More

I took in a walking tour of Antwerp during a quick business trip through Belgium. The Stadhuis was among the destinations and one of the highlights. Beautiful architecture within a very walk-able city. Rich history and did not have enough time to fully appreciate. Absolutely will visit again with my family to learn more about the area. Could see myself... More

The city hall is at the edge of the Grote Market area and sit on one side of the city square. It forms a backdrop for one view of the Brabo Fountain. The building was bedecked in flags the day we were there making fr a very colorful display. This 360 year old building is well worth seeing if you... More
