“Grand but not available...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

The day we would have investigated Hotel de Ville, there were two weddings in progress; one civil ceremony and one Muslim ceremony. Both were, of course, private affairs. So we inspected the amazing architecture of the exterior and then observed the music, dancing, and parading in the Grand Place following the ceremonies. The Belgians certainly have a retinue of unusual traditions regarding betrothal and marriage; it was quite entertaining!

“Amazing looking building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

The whole area of Grand-Place is very impressive and beautiful, but this building definitely stands out amongst them. It's sheer size alone drags your eyes towards it and it's so detailed, you can easily spend so much time just taking it all in. Love it!

“for 5 Euros during the flower carpet time !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

I am not sure what the deal is outside of the flower festival but during this time in august you can go in and look at all the rooms which are interesting in their own right but have amazing flower displays , then you can go out on to the balcony to look down on the begonia carpet which is by far the best way to see it . Stunning
