Beffroi de l'Hôtel de Ville

Belfry (LILLE)

  • UNESCO World Heritage

Spoken languages : anglais

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.
