“Amazing exterior, disappointing interior”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The stonework and history of the exterior of the building is very interesting, but the interior is a bit dull. There are five main rooms upstairs that are worth a quick visit, but nothing to really linger over. We found the guide a little ponderous and flat, but I may be being harsh as it was -2 degrees outside, and the cold could have affected my judgement! Worth a visit though.

Stunning. Even at the end of your trip you will look up it in awe. You can take a tour inside by going into the tourist info around the corner. costs about 4 euros for an hour trip

We had never visited the town hall, and it was nice to see the interior and here more about the history of the building. Informative.

One of the finest examples of Gothic style. Makes together with the Saint-Peters church a very beautiful market place.

“one of the most beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

this building is a must see in the center of the town, with its 1001 sculptures it is very expressive and representative of what once was a gloryful flemish town
