About Hôtel de Ville

The Hôtel de Ville, or Town Hall, is the architectural crown of the Grand-Place, its soaring spire reaching towards the sky as if in perpetual conversation with the heavens. This Gothic masterpiece is more than just the city's administrative heart; it's a symbol of Brussels' resilience and beauty, with a history that's as fascinating as its facade is intricate. Guided tours reveal the splendor within, from ornate council chambers to opulent reception rooms, each telling a story of civic pride and historical triumphs.

Best time/season to visit:
While the Hôtel de Ville is a stunning sight any time of year, it is particularly enchanting during the Christmas markets when the Grand-Place becomes a winter wonderland.
