“NIce building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is a great place to visit to remind yourself of the quality of government practiced in Europe in the 14th century. Well preserved and has nice surrounding with some coffee's where you can sit and enjoy the view.

“Nice building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Nice building if you enjoy architecture, not much activities to do at the building though. If you have little time skip this and check out the bigger attractions.

“One of the most beautiful town halls in Europe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

I grabbed a chair and sat in front of the town hall (with a glass of Leffe Blonde) and just looked at the facade for a few hours. There are many statues across the front from local people to royalty in differently attires. The workmanship is incredible and the statues look like real people (not like today's modern art where it looks similar but the artist does not have the skill or talent to make it look real so they call it modern art as a poor excuse for their lack of skill!) There are exhibits sometimes in the museum which are interesting! It is also fun to read the 'banns' about people who want to get married. I see many people walk by and hardly notice the beauty and love that was put into the building. Grab a chair and just look at the details. Even the magnificent statue on the tower. It will take your breath away to see such wonderful artwork and skill!
