Ghent’s flamboyant city hall was started in 1519 but not finished till 1600, by which time it had transformed into a Renaissance-style palazzo. It's a prime spot for weddings, but tourist access is limited to one-hour guided visits starting from the tourist office. Don’t confuse the Stadhuis with the controversial Stadshal, a brand new barnlike construction on nearby Bottermarkt.
