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.

Could see myself... More

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

This town hall, like many in Europe, seem to be the same. It is a grand building and you will see it as you are walking around town. Worth a visit

If you visit Antwerp over the weekend, i recommend that you book the organised Historical city walking tour from www.visitantwerpen.be If possible book it on an Sunday as the guide takes you inside the city hall to give you a tour of the wonderful rooms and tell you about the history. Sunday is also a great place to meet on... More
