Not a hard place to find, this is a great piece of grand architecture. The wide square will make it easy to get good pictures without wandering heads of strangers. The Mannekin Pis is very nearby so make a quick stop to see that also.

Located in the Grand Place square, the Town Hall is one of the Gothic structures to behold. A statue of archangel Michael sits atop the main stunning spire of Town Hall. The lavish structure is a architectural marvel and certainly a site for tourist photo ops. The area is filled with restaurants, food vendors, shops and many impressive Gothic buildings.... More

Such a great place to visit within the Grand Place. The Town Hall is architecturally stunning, great for photographers, and is also a place where you can buy some souvenirs (postcards, keychains etc.). There are plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes nearby, as the Town Hall is centrally located and easily accessible.

The town hall is one of the big and impressive buildings right on the Grand Place. The building is looking very nice from the outside, especially with the lights at night, but it is even more impressive if you get a chance to visit the inside. Unfortunately, that is not very often the case.

The building is utterly brilliant, a sheer delight to behold. A real breathtaking sight. A little tip though, go and look at it late at night... it's not busy, it's super safe and it genuinely is a much nicer experience

This is a Gothic Revival style townhall built in the Grand-Place which has been a focal point in Brussels since the Middle Ages. The fact that the Gothic Revival style was chosen in the late 19th century and executed in a way that looks like the type of building that might have been there 700 years ago, means that the...
