The monumental City Hall (1376-1421) 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 impressive vault and 20th century murals depicting the history of Bruges. In the adjacent historic hall, you can discover the important role played by the sea in Bruges' prosperity in the presentation on 'Bruges and the sea', by means of an interactive exhibition on the lost Zwin ports and some original art and archaeological objects. On the ground floor, you are brought face to face with life-size portraits of the city’s rulers and can also learn more about the evolution of the Burg Square.
