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.

Stunning room which required at least half an hour to appreciate. No crowds so it is easy to really see all of the art.

The gilded rooms here are incredible. A neat place to drop into for 45 minutes. Not enough here to warrant a long stay, but beautiful and worth it if you have the Bruges card.

What an amazing place. The pictures and ornate finishings on ceilings and walls are stunning. This is included in the multi museum entrance card.

This is an amazing hall with highly decorated ceilings, windows and walls. Spend time reading the information regarding the scenes painted on the walls.

Most people will be happy with looking at the exterior of this highly-restored building. If you love history, you may be willing to pay to see the richly-decorated upstairs council room and limited museum displays. The 19th C. wall paintings provide an engaging history of...More

Wow....the Gothic Hall upstairs is breathtaking. Yes, it's over-the-top with gilt and murals and paintings and vaulted ceiling....almost rivalling the State Rooms in the Hermitage (St Petersburg). But, what an impressive place to be married!! We saw a couple of weddings and it was almost...More

Take time to enjoy this space and study the artwork inside. It was very stuffy on the day we visited which meant we spent less time here as I had to leave.

Went in by chance, and paid to upstairs to go see the main hall - so glad we did - the paintings and history that make up the room are well worth the visit. We went into one of the anterooms - and when we...More

Another beautiful building in Brugge, located in a central square slightly secluded but easily reached by walking a short distance from the main cathedral. This attraction once you've seen the facade and the surrounding square does not offer much more ..
