While this museum has several historical displays, we found the Manneken Pis' walk-in the most interesting attraction, with contributions from countries spanning the globe. Also worth a visit is a room full of hand-drawn maps and dominated by several architectural models of the city. The entrance fee is very reasonable, an audioguide is available to stream on a phone via... More

The Town Hall of Brussels is a strange unbalanced but beautiful old building with a central part holding together two wings of different design as if 2 different architects in medieval times were commissioned to do the design and nobody was appointed to supervise their work. The result is disconcerting with clear differences in the shape of window and even... More

The facade is iconic. A few tips: opposite on the Grote Markt/Grand'Place you will find the Brussels museum, hosting the full collection of Manneken Pis costumes ;-)). Few people know that since some time the inner courtyard at the right hand side can be walked through, an elegant way to go in the direction of that same Manneken Pis, and... More

This a beautiful building in a stunning square. Unlike the rest of Brussels this place was clean! Was always busy with people but a nice area to walk through.

We took the tour and learned about the city, about the building, and the art inside is very interesting. After staying in Brussels for about 4 full days, we found it to be the most interesting place in the city, and that shed a lot of light about Brussels and Belgium. A must visit - just lookout for the English... More

Very good place to visit. Interesting specially at night. It has multiple colors on walls which make this building pretty awesome. Nearby is also house of Marks and big field (no idea if this word is good for it) where you can sit with your friends, drink something and so on. Sad is thing that after attacks in Belgium and...

We viewed the Flower Carpet from the verandah - absolutely stunning. We were also able to take a look around the building so what a bonus it was beautiful.

I had hotel-provided tickets to see the flower carpet but the town hall itself was a star attraction, with gorgeous old interiors and fine furnishing, really a cool sense of history!
