City Hall Antwerp

City Hall Antwerp

Antwerp’s City Hall is at the very heart of political life in the city. Together with the Brabo statue, this impressive building is one of the most eye-catching features on Antwerp’s Great Market Square (Grote Markt). It was added to the UNESCO world heritage list in 1999.

 Antwerp’s city hall is of great cultural importance, and is one of the first examples of Renaissance architecture in the Low Countries. This building, with its rich history, has been in use since the 16th century. There is much to admire both outside and inside Antwerp’s most stately building, including a Renaissance façade, magnificent halls and numerous works of art.

Book a guided tour of the City Hall of Antwerp to discover the splendour of this building together with a guide.

    Short tour (60 minutes) of just the renowned Schoon Verdiep (*)
  • ‘A palace for world citizens’ or ‘Welcome to the City Hall’
    This longer tour (105 minutes) of the façade, the exhibit on the restoration and, of course, the Schoon Verdiep (*) explains Antwerp’s pride and diversity.

* please note that, as a result of receptions, meetings and ceremonies, it may occasionally be impossible to visit all rooms of the Schoon Verdiep. Your guide will then be happy to tell you a bit more elsewhere.
