Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The City Hall of Brussels, it's like a beautiful jewel housed in a sumptuous setting. We visit not much to share during certain events, but the Gothic façade is worth only moving!

  • Another town checked off my bucket list. I was so glad to finally visit this place. I did not have a lot of time so I mostly spent around Town Hall and Grand Place. 
  • 有很多雕像,從外觀看起來真的滿厲害 裡面有導覽 但是沒有中文(想當然耳) 英文導覽記得是在週三下午2點 (不是每天有) 費用也不是很貴 不過我們沒興趣就沒參加 
  • It's a very impressive building with many details. The tower can be see from fare away between the houses and helps to orientade yourself in the city center.
  • One of the most beautiful buildings I have seen

  • Amazing building in this place.
