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.

Didn't do a lot for me. Staff were the least friendly people we met in Bruges. OK to visit as part of the museum pass, probably not worth paying for. Some interesting maps. I'd skip it in favour of the Liberty of Bruges next door...More

The areas within the hall that you can see are limited to two rooms - a beautiful grand hall that makes the visit absolutely worth it and a small exhibition that I found a bit confusing, but did at least learn a bit about the...More

The building is remarkable on the outside but the big hall on the first floor is something else. We spend 30 minutes just exploring it and it is magnificent.

Only really one room to see but it is very beautiful inside and wonderfully decorated. It is a must see particularly on a rainy day in Bruges

This is a short attraction to tick off the list as its really only 1 room to view. But a fabulous room it is.

This is a beautiful building in the fascinating old centre of Bruges. The outside and inside both have ornate and interesting architecture, although I did find the entrance fee a little much for what we experienced inside.

During my 3-weeks of travel in Belgium and the Netherlands, I visited several City Halls. For me this is my favorite and the most beautiful. Due to time constraints, I was unable to go inside, just took several pictures of its beautiful facades - carved...More

Well worth a visit for the paintings decorating the wall of the main meeting chamber. I would recommend you do as part of the 20 Euro museum pass as it doesn’t take long to see.

Helpful staff here pointed out the best way to see the sights we'd planned over 2 days using the Museum pass for €20 per person. We'd recouped our cost in 3 sights, one of which was this city hall. Only 2 rooms are open to...More
