The main seat of city administration since the Middle Ages, Hôtel de Ville de Bruxelles may be the first thing to draw your eye in the Market Place. The central tower was restored in the early 1990s, and the exterior is a series of detailed reliefs and sculptures dating back to the 15th century. The exterior is the most impressive part of the building, but a tour through some of the inside rooms doesn't disappoint. Begin your tour in a reception hall, which is free to enter, but a small fee gets you access to the rest of the exhibits. The fee includes a tour guide, and you only need to book 15 minutes in advance. Tours are in Dutch, French, and English daily, but each language is given at a specific time of day, so check the attraction's website for specific times. The building is still the seat of the Brussels mayor, so some rooms are closed to the public. This attractions is part of World Heritage-listed Grand Palace. Hôtel de Ville de Bruxelles is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

Only the facade and the tower of the Town Hall was saved in 1695 by the New Year's War by French troops. It served as a target for the artillery but the stone walls resisted the incendiary balls...

The town hall is a landmark of Gothic architecture whose visit is essential. It is on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. It is worth your visit and spend some time understanding its geometry, structure, shapes and design. But, you'll be able to appreciate it better if you read some of its history while you're there. This will serve to better understand its cultural and artistic value and its significance in the city.
Beautiful, historic and a very calm place. It is a square full of history and creativity. I can spend hours in this place. The buildings around this square are beautiful, full of history and art work. And this is definitely a never miss destination. If you are coming to Brussels and can hit only one spot, that is your spot.
