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

Walk through the seven side-streets you get to drawn to the gothic tower of the town hall pointing skywards. This walk, this place gives you the feeling of taking you back to fourteenth century.

L'Hotel de Ville is a fantastic example of gothic architecture, well worth a visit! Try to go before noon as the square gets super crowded with tourists

This is one of the only two buildings I was really impressed by in my short visit in Brussels. I did not get inside, but from outside it is one of the more impressing city halls !
