Bruges' City Hall (1376) is one of the oldest in the Low Countries. It is from here that the city has been governed for more than 600 years. An absolute masterpiece is the Gothic Hall, with its late 19th-century murals and polychrome vault. The adjoining historic hall calls up the city council's history with a number of authentic documents and works of art. A multimedia exhibition on the ground floor illustrates the evolution of the Burg Square.

Impressive building

Beautiful main hall upstairs with interesting murals (19th century) to look at. Just pick up a free card at the door which explains them in different languages.

One of Bruges' most beautiful interiors and a must see for any visitor. Best seen with a 20 euro 3 day all museums pass.

Someone can visit only the cetral room where the meetings where held. On the other hand, it's really nice if you see all the details of the paintings around and has also a room with many details about the history of the town.

You cannot possibly visit Bruges and not visit the Stadshuis, its beautiful building with history seeping out of every brick in the building. Go

With a joint ticket with the Bruge Vigjie this was well worth the entrance fee as there was an informative display and beautiful architecture. Worth a short visit.

This is a Great Architectural building in such a historical area that one shouldn't miss when in this area, even if it is just to stand back and look at this in awe

Located in Burge Square among other amazing architectural sights this building serves also as city hall. My wife now regret that we did not take the time to view the Gothic Hall and its ceilings. However just stepping in and viewing the building with its history made us thankful to be there. This whole busy square is one architectural wonder... More

The main hall area is stunning - use the info guide sheet to work yourself around the room. Museum section is harder to follow in English but the third area, across the courtyard, is very interesting and has magnificent wooden carving
