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.

I'm always amazed by old architecture and especially if it appears to defy gravity and Stadhuis meets this criteria. The outside of the building is very details and this continues through to the inside. Make sure you sit down and spend some time looking up...More

Few seconds walk from the Basilica of the holy blood on burg square so worth doing a combined visit. As a stand alone attraction, I wouldn't travel too far to see it.

Stunning building well worth a visit. Very interesting and unlike a lot of Bruges not over priced either. Gothic room is well worth a walk around and use one of the printed guides to help explain the paintings.

This museum is located in two separate sections (with two separate entrances) of a 14th century courthouse and city hall. The halls are stunningly decorated and the audio tour gives a great introduction to the history and art. The enormous wood-carved fireplace mantle was most...More

Beautiful 15th century gothic city Hall. Main room is beautifully decorated. Also don't miss the interesting napoleon painting near the entrance.

The Stadhuis is a very beautiful historic building and the murals of mediaeval Flemish life, including the populist revolt in the Battle of the Golden Spurs, are remarkable. They are reminiscent of Pugin's art in the Palace of Westminster in London, as well as the...More

I know that I'm in the heavy minority with an Average review but, while pretty, there's not a lot to see and the most interesting part of the Stahuis is confined to one large room. Certainly, if you're in Bruges for several days do stop...More

Our first stop was City Hall (Stadius). They charge four euro and it’s worth every penny. The white sandstone building, dating to the 1400s, is adorned with statues of former nobility and still serves as the town’s city hall. It is also a very popular...More
