This "piece de resistance" from Dudok is still used as residence for the city council and mayor. Yopu can pay a visit during the weekends ans climb the tower to have a beautiful view of the whole area surrounding Hilversum, known as Gooi and Vechtstreek. Also in the basement you'll find the Dudok Architectural Centre where the history of the famous city architect Dudok is kept. In the whole of Hilversum there are a lot of Dudok's buildings, like schools and housing projects to be admired. Information in the DAC!

It looks firm, tight, cubism and that is Willem Marinus Dudok style architecture. It's beautiful to see though it's not my favourite one

This is the masterpiece of the local architect, Dudok. The tour takes your round all the main parts of the building with lots of interesting facts and anecdotes. This is a special building that links with others in the modernist movement. It is much more than just a local curiosity. The exhibition downstairs will lead you to lots of other Dudok buildings in the town - and thwy are well worth seeing.

Beautifully design, maintained and preserved. Most of the details designed by Dudok are still visible and even today the building is still in use in accordance with the purpose it was once designed for. That in itself is an achievement. Get the tour, climb the tower and visit the museum in the basement. Take your time and get inspired by the perfection of this building.

On Dutch television, in a quiz, a week ago this Raadhuis has been named the most beatiful building in the Netherlands. I can say that I even worked in this Raadhuis for some years, and whitnessed the restauration of it many years ago. Because of a financial crisis in Hilversum there have been voices that recommended that the Raadhuis should be sold, in order to solve the crisis. But luckily most didn't agree, and financially all's better now. There used to free access to most parts of this Raadhuis. Now, because of security measures, many parts are blocked. It's better to book a tour (at the Dudok Architectuur Center) I did that myself a few years ago and you get to see more, the Mayor's room for instance if he is'n in, the wedding roon, and the citizens hall where festivities are held, and the top, with a clear view of the neigbouring places (when the weather is good).

What a standout Raadhuis! I walked around town and suddenly this great building in the sun surrounded by a small green park. This is what you call a city hall.
