Owner description: The Bruges Town Hall was built in 1376—and amazingly, the city has been governed from this building for more than 700 years. Go inside to see the Town Hall’s 19th century Gothic Chamber and the painted figures that shed light on the city’s incredible past.

“Fantastic looking building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The Town Hall is a lovely looking building inside and out. If you have time have a look at night also when it is lit up. The outside is covered in many statues and is very photographic. Sometimes the building looks quite grey and other times it is a pale brown, when the sun is out it looks fantastic. For a small charge you can visit the Gothic Chamber with it's fabulous ceiling and painted walls, well worth a visit.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We had a museum pass. This included an audio guide, which is essential in explaining the paintings downstairs and the 19th century paintings and decorative art in the Assembly room upstairs. It is a visually attractive building that helps to show the historical importance of Bruges.

“Quick visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Literally only one room to see, which is admittedly spectacular. Under 25's get in cheaper so take your ID!

Free audio tour which is a nice bonus. Only allow up to 30 minutes to look round the whole place.

“beautiful center!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Love the architecture in this center! Takes me back to ancient Europe! There's horse drawn carriages right outside and somehow the buildings manage to look pristine and untouched! Lots of gold on these buildings and hand crafted sculptures right into the building!
