I keep writing that Ghent offers terrific photo opportunities, and indeed it does. To be frank, other than San Bavo, there isn't that much on the inside of any of these buildings... read more

Another lovely building of the city center, The Ghent Town Hall, has a lovely design and unique structure. I think that the most appealing aspect of the building itself its appreciated from the outside so paying money to get in, for a five minutes stay, was a little bit of a stretch. Still, another photo moment to the collection.

I keep writing that Ghent offers terrific photo opportunities, and indeed it does. To be frank, other than San Bavo, there isn't that much on the inside of any of these buildings that make them worth the time or money. Get the photo...move on.

The building is an important part of the fascinating history of Ghent. We went as part of a tour from the Tourist Bureau which helped as the Town Hall is a very busy place with numerous weddings. This can restrict access to some of the best parts. The staff were not at all helpful but the guide still managed to... More

In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful city hall in Europe. The outside is incredible. Unfortunately the city hall only open for wedding.

We did not a chance to go into the building but it really is a beautiful piece of architecture. I did not see anything that I did not like!

We were lucky enough to see a wedding exiting from the building. You can't visit the inside but the outside is beautiful.

This town hall building has a nice architecture and is beautifully light up at night! It matches the overall beauty of the city center!

The Ghent town hall is not only worth seeing from the outside, but also from the inside. Though admission is only possible through booking a guided tour at Gentse Gidsen or in the tourist office (Veerleplein 5). You will see great halls and hear the history behind them. Tours booked in the tourist office cost 8 euros and also contain... More
