This stunning building has many different styles incorporated into it. As time went on, different architects put there own style into the design.

We did not go inside but the architectural façade is amazing and as a free sight it really is a must see. Truly fabulous. Just off the main drag in the tourist centre.

This town hall must be one of the strangest but also the most beautiful in its own way. The facade varies and provides the tourist with much interest. Also lovely at night with the lights..

In the center of Ghent , this town hall is less impressive as the one in Brussel or Antwerp. But the city of Ghent made a lot of efforts to upgrade this center and it is worth to visit everything at least for a day.

You can get a tour by booking with a guide at the information centre. Well worth it - lots of interesting history and a beautiful building still being used for the intended purpose.
