Rising more than 104 metres high, the town hall belfry is the tallest in Northern Europe. It was designed by architect Emile Dubuisson, who created the traditional forms of neo-Flemish architecture using 20th-century materials. There are fourteen floors, built of cement, stone and bricks, most of which can be accessed by a lift. The view from the belvedere at the top simply takes your breath away. There is also a light at the very top, that can be seen from thirty kilometres away.
