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.

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!

It is definitely worth your time to visit, and it is especially beautiful to see it decorated with Christmas lights. Make it a part of your visit to the city!
