You won't believe your eyes, while walking through the enormous halls of the old Town Hall. On every floor there is an interactive , digital , horizontal LCD screen, on which can enjoy various explanations of the floor on which you are!

Great visit and should be on your to do list! The facade alone and a walk around the building is worth the visit! You sure will take hundreds of pictures of the sculpted facade. Amazing inside salons to visit.

It is a very beautiful building, worth to visit if you are in Ghent. As I have visited around Christmas there were many Christmas markets around.

Walking by the Ghent Town Hall, I was attracted by it, after all the facade was in flamboyant Gothic style. However, on the other side of the Town Hall, it seems like a different building. It is not! The other part is more like the mild Renaissance style. Quite a contrast! Intrigued, I wanted to see the inside as well.... More

It is hard to pick something special in Gent as there are so many spectacular sights to impress us. Just don't miss anything.

The architecture was interesting, but typical of so many other buildings in Europe. Was a little disappointed to find it was not open to the public. It might have been interesting inside. On to the next!

Definetely not the best in Flanders. But this does not mean at all it is not nice. Just in Flanders all city halls are incredibly beautiful. Of course central it is situed in a nice and vibrant square. Just impossible to be missed.

Beautiful architecture and a must see at least from outside if you are in ghent. You will pass through this building while you are visiting the major attractions of Ghent. And the feel of the building in the night flooded with yellow light is awesome.

A fabulous historic building right in the centre of Ghent with all of the major attractions within walking distance. Many cafes and restaurants are around this area. Well worth seeing
