    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..
