The main seat of city administration since the Middle Ages, Hôtel de Ville de Bruxelles may be the first thing to draw your eye in the Market Place. The central tower was restored in the early 1990s, and the exterior is a series of detailed reliefs and sculptures dating back to the 15th century. The exterior is the most impressive part of the building, but a tour through some of the inside rooms doesn't disappoint. Begin your tour in a reception hall, which is free to enter, but a small fee gets you access to the rest of the exhibits. The fee includes a tour guide, and you only need to book 15 minutes in advance. Tours are in Dutch, French, and English daily, but each language is given at a specific time of day, so check the attraction's website for specific times. The building is still the seat of the Brussels mayor, so some rooms are closed to the public. This attractions is part of World Heritage-listed Grand Palace. Hôtel de Ville de Bruxelles is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

This is a gorgeous town hall building, located in the famous Grand Place. The town hall is probably the most impressive building in the square.

Brussels townhall is very unique. It has evolved a lot during its history. Visiting it with a tour is a very nice way to learn its history. The building has very nice rooms that are using in a daily basis by its Mayor.
I’ve been here on Christmas to watch the Christmas light show. It was nice and beautiful but there were so many people!
