This town hall is a beautiful building on the large and stunning central town square. It has been rebuild with original features even though it was shelled to ruins during the Great War, it also hosts a museum of the war.

Very beautiful town full of history and historic places. Some lovely chocolate shops. Didn't go to the museum but the town itself has lots of character. Would visit again for a longer look round.

The town hall and the rather late belfry, the latter symbolising the joined power of Veurne and the rural area around the town, is very nice, as is the architecture of the town hall. Sadly, for individual tourists the town hall is closed. The belfry...More

Fantastic building, with beautiful medieval aesthetics - not dissimilar, from some of the architecture which can be seen in the Markt in Bruges. Parking is available in the main square (Grote Markt) of Veurne, nearby the building, and it is free, but - please note...More
