The town hall is very famous in Brussels, but not only for its magnificent architecture and awesome details. If you have an eye for details you will notice asymmetry in the building.

Yes this is nice, but nothing special. It is however one if the better sites in Brussels. You need a wide angled lense to fit it in!

The town hall is quite a lovely building, very impressive overlooking the square, really imposing outside so definitely take a camera. Great to sit in the Starbucks outside on corner, looking out at the square.

Check out the tour, tickets available at the Tourist Info office at street level. Well worth the visit for a history of the Town Hall and Brussels. Tours are offered in English at select times.

The town hall is one of Brussel's most beautiful buildings, set right at the heart of the city, giving the Grand Place its splendour and charm. It is easy to visit and has a lot of connections to the city's history.

One of the most eye-catchingbuildings at the magnificent Grote Markt. The city Hall is still in use, Only on wednesdays it is possible to get a tour of the interior unless you are a large group. Visiting the interior is interesting though. You get to see many paintings of key-personalities in European history. There are a lot of 16th, 17th... More
