Magnificent Gothic-style building at Brussels' Grand Place Editors' Note

Dating back to the Middle Ages, Town Hall (Hotel de Ville) is a wonderful place to visit while in Brussels. The intricacies of the architecture and design are breathtaking, as are the arched windows and story-telling sculptures. The interior is equally as lavish as the outside of the building.

Though you’ll find more of a mix across periods with the decor of Town Hall’s interior, you will enjoy the influence of artwork, tapestries and furnishings from international sources. The Gothic Hall is worth a visit when the city’s alermen are not in session, as the building is still the seat of civic government.
