City Hall of Brussels and its collection

City Hall of Brussels

Do you know why the wing on the right of the tower is shorter than the one on the left, and why the entrance is asymmetrical? Do you know that the building still has some original parts, but that it also has many additions and restored elements? If you want to know everything about this building, which has been the centre of political and administrative life for more than 600 years, you should take a guided tour. The classic tour, accompanied by a guide, allows visitors to learn more about the context of the different periods of construction of the building by observing the main façade overlooking the Grand Place and the courtyard of the Town Hall. The public will then have the opportunity to admire the ceremonial offices, all the main rooms and the galleries (Burgomaster's Office, Town Council Chamber, Maximilian Hall, Wedding Hall, Gothic Hall, Portrait Gallery, Grangé Gallery, etc.). Initially, these tours will take place on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, in French, Dutch or English and in groups of no more than 25 people. The panoramic tour offers the opportunity to discover two of the main halls (the Wedding Hall and the Gothic Hall), the public will then be directed to the balcony of the Town Hall to enjoy a breathtaking view of the prestigious Grand Place. The visit continues with a climb up the tower of the Town Hall. A spiral staircase leads up to the top, where you are rewarded with an exceptional view of Brussels from its nerve centre. At present, these tours take place only on Saturdays, in French, Dutch or English and in groups of no more than 15 people aged 7 or over.
