Magnificent craftsmanship, vast historic references, brilliant audio guide. Totally worth the price of the ticket. Take your time and soak in the details to understand how important it is to be true to the values for the citizens of this town.

Stadhuis (town hall) is a 14th century gem of an attraction that is very much worth visiting while sightseeing in Bruges. Opening hours are 9.30-5pm. Entry fee is now €6 per person and includes access to the Brugse Vrije (Liberty of Bruges) also at Burg...More

Brugge City Hall is a wonderful building, architecturally as well as artistically. It is quite old, dating as far back as the 12th or 13th century. It is amazingly decorated and it has a number of very interesting exhibits for visitors. Definitely worth a visit.

Originally built in 1376 and beautifully restored to its original glory in the 19th century, the attraction mainly consists of two rooms. The main gothic hall which is sumptuously decorated with murals depicting famous events of Bruges history and an adjoining exhibition room containing very...More

Who knew City Hall and the Council Chambers could be so beautiful. Each wall tells a story which you can read about from a card presented to you in the Council Chambers. It really is worth a visit!

This place is just wonderful both indoors and out. The outside of the building just adds to the surrounding buildings and adds to the historic area

The city hall of Bruges is without a doubt one of the most beautiful city halls in the world. The architecture, the art (and the size) is most impressive. It's over 700 years old and together with the belfry and the other historic buildings this...More

The main room itself is gorgeous, and covered in amazing paintings. Not much to see beyond the main room, and the audio tour focuses really heavily on explaining the 19th century artwork on the walls rather than the hundreds of years of history or current...More

Driving in cities on a road trip through Belgium (6 Replies)
My husband and I are in the early stages of planning a trip to Europe. We have considered the options of flying, taking the train, and driving between our stays in Amsterdam and Paris. We would like to take a few days between in order to see some of Belgium and have decided to rent a car outside of Amsterdam and drop it off outside of Paris. We are aware of one way car rental fees and other negatives to driving, but we love road trips and would like to incorporate this into our trip. We are...More

I can't help much, but: Day 1 "try to be stopped for dinner to avoid evening rush hour if driving on a weekday" - This sounds as though you think dinner comes before rush hour, but it would have to be very early (in fact, afternoon tea!) for that to be the case. Because of staggered working hours, in and around Brussels the evening rush "hour" starts around 16:00 and continues until maybe 19:00 hrs. I would guess the peak is between 17:30 and 18:30 hrs for both Antwerp or Brussels, when the...More

Amsterdam Parking Garage for Dodge RAM (MAX HEADROOM) (18 Replies)
HI Folks, we are planning a weekend trip to amsterdam and i am now i bit confused, because i have seen that most parking garages i have checked (Stadhuis/Central P1) have a max headroom of 180cm. I am driving a Dodge RAM 1500, does anyone give me a tip, if there are any garages which have higher headroom, so my car will fit? Best regards!!

that is not a car..it is a half-ton pick up truck. while that truck would be right at home here in texas certainly not in the NL. you could inquire with the P&R garages that lie on the outskirts of town to see if you can fit your truck in. tripadvisor.com/Travel-g188590-c134770/Amste…

Yes it can be... By bike you can get a bit further, e.g. to the village Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. There's a monumental "banning pole" along the route: members.virtualtourist.com/m/p/m/19b883/ Cheers, Dennis
