Bruges' City Hall (1376) is one of the oldest in the Low Countries. It is from here that the city has been governed for more than 600 years. An absolute masterpiece is the Gothic Hall, with its late 19th-century murals and polychrome vault. The adjoining historic hall calls up the city council's history with a number of authentic documents and works of art. A multimedia exhibition on the ground floor illustrates the evolution of the Burg Square.

Small but good!

Excellent exhibit which takes approximately 25 minutes to visit. Your entry fee here also gains access to the Vrije which is worth the fee.

The guide book was right when it said the interior would not let you down following the dramatic exterior. Fabulous space. 4 euros per adult, nice place to sit and contemplate.

We visited on a Saturday morning during a 4 day visit. As it was just after opening hours started we were the only ones in there and were able to appreciate the building in peace and quiet. It's well worth a visit, the architecture is truly stunning. The leaflets give a lot of information about what the murals show, offering... More

This an interesting museum. Go for the sake of the building and for the superb 19th century mural paintings depicting historic events. I found it to be well worth a visit.

This is a beautiful, highly decorated interior. So much to look at it is really hard to take in all of the details from the carvings to the paintings.

Beautiful decorated hall with small museum. Interesting history. I would recommend taking the 20 Euro Museumpas which allows entry over 3 consecutive days the most of the museums and is very good value. Definitely worth a visit.

My wife spent a couple of days in Bruges (Brugge) and the 600-year old Stadhuis (City Hall), located in the main Burg square was the first place we visited. It is the oldest city hall in the Low Countries. Although entry was only Euro 4 per person, we purchased a multi-entry ticket, which for Euro 20 per person (regrettably no... More

Popped in here to look at the murals and the artifacts. Really interesting. The murals portrayed some important historical moments and the artifacts were well preserved and really neat.
