Stadhuis, Bruges

#23 of 262 in Things to do in Bruges
Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Beautiful !!!!!
  • One of the magnificent structure of bruges.. Never seen anything like that anywhere in Belgium. Unfortunately this turned out to be our last stop of the evening and could not get inside at 5.30 pm.
  • A museum with one hall and one exhibition room. The ticket 6 € is valid for this museum and Brugse Vrije next door. The hall looks magnificent decorated with flemish arts.
  • As a museum very small, but nice room with paintings and woodwork. And don't forget the fireplace.
  • Definitely worth a visit
