This building was built over many years starting in renaissance style with extremely intricate artwork and design and being finished in a totally different style.

On the itinerary of the walking tour of Ghent city centre, impressive externally but sadly lacking in information display. Would greatly benefit from something similar to the UK Blue Plaque system

Great Gothic architecture but nothing to say what it was or any history plaque. Imposing in the rain and imagine it would be excellent lit up at night.

Did I said that I like Ghent very much? And as everything in Ghent this is an amazing building. And as everything in the city it should be admire. Spend a little bit of time for it.

Wasn't open while I was there but it is certainly worth taking a few minutes (or more) to enjoy and explore all the detail on the exterior of the building.

Did not go inside, but the exterior is worth a picture or two. Very ornate. Very close to the belfry and St. Bavo's.

We stopped by this structure during our walking tour of Ghent and wasn't as impressed by this Stadhuis as we were in many other Belgian cities
