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.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I found the town hall very interesting. You can sit there for a good half hour just looking around the main hall. As well as some interesting facts in the next room.

Lovely big rooms, great wall paintings, well-organized with explanations of what one's seeing - plastic-coated sheets available in all rooms in many languages.

Worth a visit as part of your Brugge itinerary. Make sure you enjoy a hot chocolate either side of your visit.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

don't miss it, and enter this attraction. Inside you can see the splendid murals , there is a detailed explenation in english which makes them even more impressive. At the recpetion you can buy the bruge card which is quite profitable if you intend to visit some of the museums in the city (and not just 2 or 3 of them)

“Outstanding architecture and decoration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

This is a magnificent building by any standard; centuries old and full of character, inside and out. It is still in use as an administrative centre for the town so visitors are restricted to the magnificent hall and a small display gallery but it is still well worth the entrance fee. The paintings and carvings are stunning.
