Visit with the videoguide

Visit with the videoguide

Immerse yourself in the heart of the City Hall of Brussels and let yourself be transported back through the centuries thanks to an interactive experience. As soon as you arrive on the Grand-Place, you'll be captivated by the imposing silhouette of this emblematic building, a jewel of Gothic architecture.

In 23 different steps, around the bend of a monumental staircase, a precious cabinet or a room well known to the people of Brussels, this tour will take you from one era to another, retracing nearly 6 centuries of history. You can explore the City Hall at your own pace with the help of your videoguide.

For the more adventurous, take a guided tour on the weekends and climb up to the tower, which offers a 360-degree view of the city. This breathtaking experience allows you to admire the skyline of Brussels.

Whether you're a history buff, an art lover or a family in search of adventure, a visit to the City Hall of Brussels will enchant and inspire you.
