  • It took us a while to locate this building but we persevered and found it. Nice architecture which deserves some time to stand and look at the detail.  more »
  • At the town hall we can see the throne room of Joseph II. The building is visible from two different architectural influences. The oldest piece onto Hoogstraat street dating from the 16th century. The other on the Botermarkt square is the 17th century. The statues in the niches were added in 1890; although here housed the administrative offices of the municipality are unable to tour in a few theaters and especially in the Hall of peace. In this Hall was signed the Treaty of Ghent in 1576 against governance of the Habsburgs.

  • The Passificatiezaal where the "Geuzen" another peace treaty signed together with the Spanish Catholics still speaks to the imagination. It is the dream of William the silent to realize peace in this area. It has may not be. The town hall with its magnificent rooms and historic incentives should not simply ignore. Too bad you can visit this beautiful building only with a guide. But the front also makes a lot of good. A Pearl of renaissance and magnificent flaming Flemish Gothic.
