Town Hall

Ghent’s town hall is a building with many faces. The flamboyant Gothic style of the façade in Hoogpoort contrasts sharply with the rather sober Renaissance style of the Botermarkt side.

You can also see many different styles inside the building: the Arsenal Hall with its wooden vaulting, the marvellous Wedding Chapel with the counts of Flanders immortalised in stained glass windows, the Pacification Hall with its white and black paved labyrinth, a symbol of the quest for justice and happiness, and many more.

Not getting married anytime soon but keen to visit the Town Hall? Now you can visit the building with a guide and/or view the virtual tour here.

Can only be visited with a guide (01/05>30/09).
