  • Visited the town hall with a guide. Nice what City Hall is still used for weddings, receptions and other official occasions. Guide know much to tell about the building, its history and its art.

  • It is without a doubt a beautiful Hall decoration overloaded by all sides. Too bad that one of the towers is modern brick

  • It's just so magnificent it's deeply exhilarating every time you look at it
  • A fantastic lovely old city hall in the beautiful gothic style, situated at De Grote Markt! This is still used for weddings, etc!
  • There is nothing to say about this city hall. It's designed in classic Belgian architecture. Marvellous, a must see.. If you want to see a bigger one, then you must visit Brussels..
  • So much hard work and faith Love and respect to the elders 👣 ❤
  • Beautiful, nothing else to say, a piece of living history
