Create an itinerary including Stadhuis
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. With our world travel planner, Bruges attractions like Stadhuis can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The building is impressive outside, and you can also visit inside. You can enter the foyer for free, but it’s nothing to see there. There is a big hall on the first floor with beautiful murals around....  more

  • An historic place in the centre of Bruges where public is allowed to roam freely in the main entrance hall but one has to pay to visit the museum. The interior is dull looking and dark coloured walls and floor with less aesthetic appeal.
  • Gotic hall, nicely decorated!All over it has pictures through which history is told. It took them 9 years to agree which picture should be drawn! You read the story by your self from a plastic paper.Entrance 7 euro for this hall and the court house.
  • Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium, is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. In the city center’s Burg square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling. Nearby, Markt square features a 13th-century belfry with a 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views. Location : It is about 95 km from Brussels. Public transport is available. but better to take a tour package so as to cover Ghent as well. We took Getyourguide package. A nice bus with a guide and audio kit was well organised. Entry Ticket: The boat ride was optional. We did not take the option, rather we moved around on our own. One can opt while booking or at the place. What we did : The place is very nice to walk around. Lot of gothic style buildings, lot of places to eat and drink. We looked around and decided to take " Historium". It was really good. It has a VR show, museum, and climb up in the tower to have beautiful panoramic city view. It was worth 25 euros per person. It talks about the history of Bruges. VR show was really good.
  • A beautiful small museum featuring a gothic hall depicting important events in the history of Bruges. Explanations and details are well explained in guides offered in several languages or by audio guide (qr code scanning).
  • Wonderfully elaborate paintings along the City Hall. The paintings are well preserved and you can grab a laminated poster to read about each scene. Tickets cost €7 and grants entry to the adjacent Bruges Vrije.
