Stadhuis, Bruges

(4.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the ornate exterior of Stadhuis, whose Gothic facade is guarded by gilded knights. The building has withstood the test of time and is hailed as a symbol of the city. A small fee gets you access to the hall and the antechamber. These are the only rooms opened to the public, but the architecture and the artwork hanging on the walls is worth the short visit. Pick up an information card at the entrance to guide you through the paintings and the people pictured in them. Using our world travel planner, Bruges attractions like Stadhuis can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The entry only costs € 4. Although the only interior has the medieval Hall is quite spectacular. The entry includes access to a stay in an adjacent building that has a beautiful fireplace.

  • For the price of 4 euros you can three halls. The first room is spectacular, but that's it. Liberty of Bruges, there it could staff more friendly

  • Very small attraction (just a couple of rooms) but the gothic hall is absolutely stunning and for the small cost it's worth a quick visit.  more »

  • We purchased the museum pass, but had we not I would have been upset to pay for this museum individually. Two rooms and many people that work there making it very clear they were packing up for the day... over an hour before close.
  • Good place for tourists who are into old architecture and interior
  • Lovely architecture. Waffle-van-adjacent. Excellent view from the bench across the square. Room for improvement: - the painting of the building on display inside the building would have been even better if it had looked like the building it was meant to be of - one of the flags (the yellow one) waving in the wind above main entrance had come loose and ruined the symmetry of the design and caused me great personal distress
  • There is only one thing to see really - the extremely impressive main banquet hall which is covered in painted plasterwork. Do get the laminated guide card as you enter, and follow it around the hall as you learn about each scene describing important moments from the history of Bruges. You can also just sit in one of the chairs and let it all sick in. There is also a side room with a few exhibits on the history of Bruges but it's very badly organised (guide card order doesn't match the display cases), and like in most Bruges museums English writing is often absent from the labels or in this case even the guide). But the main hall alone is definitively worth the ticket price!
  • Nice building for tourists to see
