Stadhuis, Bruges
(4.5/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • Arriving in the Burg Square, already you can see the majestic beauty of this building, a richly decorated façade, entering is very posh and Nice, you can visit a couple rooms. But what impressed us most was its imposing façade

  • Town Hall, Gothic style, a town hall in the middle ages. The upstairs meeting room decorated with Gothic-style wooden embellishments on each side, they have pictures and ornaments made with Yamashita.

  • The Board room is superb and deserves her visit but know this, the visit of the Interior of the City Hall only has interest for this unique piece. Therefore, make the pleasure last, not forgetting the audio guide included with the 4th you will have disbursed and listen carefully to all the comments. But once again, superb room.

  • 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!
  • 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
  • Love this place, had an amazing architecture you can feel like travel in time
  • dont need to spend money o the enterence fee.thr building is nice to enjoy
  • Beautiful building.
