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.

“Photogenic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is the city hall and was originally built in the 14th century, but remodelled in the 19th – so as my wife pointed out – “it’s only Victorian”. Nevertheless, it’s still photogenic in the extreme, particularly the hall on the upper floor.

“Superb wedding location ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This is the place where people from Bruges get married in the most wonderful wedding hall. Therefor it is a very special place but most tourists only get to see the outside ...

“Colourful & interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The Town Hall is well worth a visit. An excellent audio handset guided tour (in English) included in the ticket price. Impressive main hall.

“Amazing room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

It is worth going into the Stadhuis, even though there's only three public spaces to go into. The audio guide is included in the (inexpensive for Brugge) entry fee. This also includes the odd place next door, which for its one amazing room, is also worth a look-see.

“Stunning Upstairs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

The tour was guided by audio and included several portraits downstairs followed by 3 installments upstairs. The hall upstairs is beautiful and worth a lingering visit. Each installment is worth listening to in full. Take a seat for the first and second. The third is best heard walking from mural to mural. It brings to life Bruge's history and the dignity with which the city was governed. A highlight for the whole family.
