Break taking views of Lille
Feb 2020 • Couples
Break taking views of Lille in a Sunday rainy morning. You need to ring a bell to enter to the lobby, sign a logbook and climb 110 stairs until you get to counter to buy the ticket and take the elevator until the top of the tower. When you reach the top of the tower, you have the best views of Lille and adjacent towns

Bonjour 250priscillap, We thank you for this testimony of your visit to the belfry of the town hall. As you say, the 360 ° view from the top of the belfry allows you to see the whole region of Lille to the Monts de Flandres and Belgium. Yours faithfully

Great views of Lille (plus some exercise!)
Jan 2020
It wasn't all that busy when we went but we still had to wait 15 minutes or so for our turn as only 19 people are allowed in the belfry at a time. Not sure what it's like in the summer.
The climb to the top was fine, with an option to take an elevator after the first 110 or so steps.
The views are great although they are mostly of the more modern parts of Lille as the old town is some distance away.

Bonjour Stevewfoster, We thank you for the comment. We are delighted that you enjoyed the visit of the belfry of the town hall. The security measures impose a limited number of people on top of the belfry, that's why you had to wait before your climb. We thank you for your understanding. Have a nice day! Yours faithfully Lille Tourist Office

One of the most iconic sights in Lille, dominating the views in the centre. Beautiful architecture and amazing details. A must-see.

Amazing views over Lille and good walk to the top
Nov 2019
Great views over Lille from top of tower. Used to also be one of the 1st TV transmitters due to it's height. Informative displays. There is a lift if you don't want to climb the multiple steps to the top. Both inside and outside view and good view of the Porte De France

Nice views, worth a visit.
Nov 2019 • Couples
This is a nice thing to do if visiting Lille, we took the lift from the interim floor and to be honest regretted it. The walk would have been quite challenging but it would have made the experience more fun I think. We walked down.

Just be careful of the time you get there, if you want to avoid a wait I recommend getting there at 10 - 15 mins before the published morning or afternoon opening times, and you’ll be in with no delay (hopefully).

Nice views from the top and it’s only 15 mins walk to the Palais de beaux-arts which is brilliant.

Total trip time for the Belfry is less than an hour.

Fantastic views, worth a visit.
Aug 2019
Me and my son chose to walk to the top for the challenge and then we caught the lift back down again. Lovely views at the top. While the top floor is open, it is enclosed by enough protective netting so you don't feel queasy. Alternatively, there is fully enclosed floor just below. Recommend.

Stunning in several ways
Jul 2019 • Friends
Very French - even when it is open you have toring the doorbell. There is a lift, but about 120 steps too. Brilliant views at top, highly interesting structure - steel and concrete with deco detailing. Not expensive

A highlight of any visit
Dec 2018 • Friends
Visited as part of a day trip to Lille from the UK via EuroStar. Walked straight from the train station to the Belfry, and having arrived was initially struck by the security of the entrance as we had to ring the doorbell at the entrance to have the security buzzer unlock the door after speaking to the door entrance guard. Not used to this but as there had been a shooting at another Christmas market the day before I am not sure if this was an enhanced security feature rather than standard. In any case, once entered we chose to walk up the stairs rather than take the lift. This should only be attempted by those fit enough to do so. Luckily as we there so early it was completely empty so we did not feel rushed in either the assent or once we reached the viewing level. I am scared of heights but there was good security in the form of netting I assume to avoid people dropping items off the edge and stop birds. Either way, I enjoyed the walk back down, and to the time to read the descriptions of the belfry's historic uses. Small souvenir shop at the bottom and all in about 45-60 mins visit which on a clear day like we had afforded great views over the city. Close to the town centre, I would recommend making this place a stop on any visit.
