There are several different styles of architecture represent here at the Town Hall and all are unique and quite interesting. Another great architectural landmark in Ghent.

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.

Beautiful building from the outside, constructed in two different architectural styles. I didn't take the tour, just saw it from the outside, but it is centrally located so it is easy to see it.

Another very pretty building. One would think it was a church more than a city hall if you didn't know what it was.

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.
