The Town Hall was built to impress and IT DOES!! It's a gorgeous architectural work that dominates the Grote Markt. The beautiful sculpture in front of the Town Hall depicts the story of how Antwerp was named. Lots of restaurants and shops around the square. It was worth the trip!

I just loved the facade of this building with all the flags and fun open fountain in front. The Stadhuis is very monumental and one of those building you have to just stop and take in due to all the beautiful details. You will definitely like the inside as well, it's rooms and beautiful paintings.

The Town Hall is a monumental structure, decorated with heraldic devices and pinnacles. In March 2015 there is an exhibition of the history of the building, multi-language explanations being available.

If you like the outside, you will be more surprised by the inside! Beautiful paintings on the walls, nice rooms and steps.

I am quite sure that this building is one of the most beautiful town halls in the world. At night, when the lights are on, it is a treat!!

Not much to see in reality but what there is is presented very well...with lots of humour & interesting asides. Pity they don't open up the Audience Chamber in the main building for the public to see where the official functions are held

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.
