The great facade is looking to the hotel where I stay. Unfortunately the entrance now is from the other side, through the more modern part of the building. And you will not be offfered to see the old building from inside - the limited access to the groups is through the preliminary arrangements only

The outside is magnificent. We just went into the lobby to see the art work. Worthy of a few spare minutes. We were not aware of being able to tour around or go further than we did, but not having time to do so, we did not ask either.

This was an interesting building to see and warrants a photo if you happen to be in Ghent. We did not try to go inside but enjoyed a nice meal at a nearby restaurant overlooking the Stadhuis.

This is a very old and impressive building. I do not know how old this building is? The architecture and the facade are magnificent. It is in the center of town and together with the Bell Tower and the Castle make the Ghent Town Center and interesting tourist attraction.

Lovely old building in prestine condition, looks to be in daily use, seemed to be very busy when we were there, not sure if you are allowed in, we did not attempt as there appeared to be something on. The architecture on the outside is well worth seeing

We entered this thinking that we could but it appeared to be a fully functioning council office. However you can go in there and use the toilet and on the way out we were able to view the Council Chamber!! The building is splendid from outside but there does not appear to be any tour of the inside. However as... More

We did not manage to fit Ghent into our Belgian tour last year, and so decided to go back this September! Ghent is a lovely city. It is quite small but has the charm and history of Bruges combined with the atmosphere of Antwerp. Take a boat trip and along the way do some canalside cafe and bar spotting for... More
