The Town Hall (French: Hôtel de Ville, Dutch: Stadhuis) is a Gothic building from the Middle Ages. It is located on the famous Grand Place. The oldest part of the present Town Hall is its east wing (to the left, when facing the front). This wing, together with a small belfry, was built from 1402 to 1420 under direction of Jacob van Thienen, and future additions were not originally foreseen. However, the admission of the craft guilds into the traditionally patrician city government probably spurred interest in expanding the building. Read more
