I attended a meeting where the attendants were invited to a reception in the City Hall. What a beautiful building indeed!

The City Hall of Kortrijk is located on the main square of Kortrijk.
The present city hall was erected about 1520 in a style composed of Gothic and Renaissance elements.
In 1526, statues of the principal Counts of Flanders were put into niches, and in the year 1616 the Town Hall was once more enlarged, with a part of the front in the extant style.
From the end of the 17th and throughout the 18th centuries, the front underwent a series of alterations and in 1938, the first plans were drawn for the restoration of the building to its 16th-century state. The actual works lasted from 1958 to 1961.
In the city hall, you also find the beautiful Aldermen’s hall and the Council chamber with 16th century sculpted chimneys.

Impressive looking building which features many statues of the Counts of Flanders. At least 3 weddings took place here during our stay.

Even though the Kaiser's army used it as their headquarters for this section of the Western Front and the Nazi occupying army had full use of it the Council Chamber in its full medieval splendour is worth a visit for anybody interested in history.

We were lucky enough to get a personal guided tour, from a keyholder.

Fantastic building outside, and the interior does not disappoint either, with ancient maps and tapestries hung on several walls, plus amazing stone and wood work. Great stained glass of the coats of arms of all of the villages and communes which make up the Kortrijk area.

If you do get the chance to see inside, then take it.

Very attractive building in the centre of Kortrijk. We were not able to go inside, but found the outside very impressive and worth a visit

The city hall was going to be open at two p.m. We were there on time. In fact, we were the only ones visiting the city hall. Most people were at the Grote Markt, listening to a concert. We had the whole place for ourselves.

The person in charge was very friendly. He shared some concerns with us. Since the attack on the airport in Brussels, people are now scared. Hotels are half booked and the same is true for restaurants in Brussels. During the week, he works in Brussels. He wished he could work in another part of Belgium. He then gave us a guide about this building.

There were two rooms that were so beautiful! The rooms have a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance elements.

The one on the main floor had a sculpted chimney with golden inlay. I couldn’t stop admiring it. In this room are stained-glass windows, making it even more attractive. There were some great paintings on the wall as well.

On the first floor, there is a room that has Gothic arches and a wooden portico that leads into a beautiful room. This is where the other gorgeous room is located. There too is a beautiful mantelpiece made of stone.

This City Hall is a piece of art!

Sadly there was some construction on the outside of this place. It must be beautiful as well! I certainly delighted this visit of amazing beauty. It’s a must to see!

Inside the city hall (the outside is currently hidden behind scaffolding) there are 2 rooms very much worth seeing. The schepenzaal, where currently people are married, and the raadszaal upstairs used for council meetings. Visit to both is free, and there is an information leaflet is several languages. Both rooms have an impressive and highly carved chimney piece. The schepenzaal also has 2 maps painted on the wall from 1641, the other room has neo-Gothic paintings. Both have stained windows. Although not as impressive as the chimney piece in Brugge, this is well worth a visit. It is only open between 3 and 5pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays in July and August.
