The Town Hall of Brussels at the Grand Place is a splendid example of fine Brabantine Gothic architecture. No wonder lots of people take a picture here. Guided tours are possible, just see the website. It's worthwhile!

The Town Hall is gorgeous. The tourist information center is located inside as well as a police station. You can't see any more of the inside than this.

A pedantic, overly detailed tour of the Hotel de Ville concentrating on the dynasties and royal families, but also on the beauty of the furnishings. Charming if irrelevant to anything.

Really lovely design from the outside. I cannot comment on the inside as we didn't go in. I think it was closed when we went. Some nice paintings through the glass that we saw. Worth a look and in a lovely square with cafes and shops.

Loved the exterior facade - it's pretty much artistic perfection - with interesting sculpture, detail and perfect proportion

Great range f historical attractions about Brussels. The interior of the palace is worth the visit alone, absolutely beautiful. The visit is very reasonably priced and having done the free walking tour a lot of the history made much more sense. The exhibit of the costumes for the manikin pis is great!

The Hotel de Ville of Brussels is a masterpiece of art. Very detailed and refined. You cannot miss it if you are in the Grand Place. It is the most artistic building around. It is also artistic in its interior.

Absolutely Stunning! Take a walk past at night and don't forget your camera as there are some absolutely amazing photos to be taken. Give yourself plenty of time to browse the area around with some amazing restaurants, bars, chocolate shops and more

They show the history of the area throughout the centuries. At the present time on the third floor is a show of Brussels during the war. Very interesting.
