Tongeren City Hall

The original city hall was located on the corner of the Main Market Square and Sint-Truiderstraat (currently Huis Boulet) until the Great Fire of 1677, which reduced Tongeren to ashes. Building did not commence on the new city hall until 1737 on the site where the cloth hall and tailors chamber had stood. The building is a fine example of the Maasland style. Don’t miss the various commemorative stones on the left wall.
Here’s an interesting fact - does Tongeren’s city hall look a bit familiar? Well, it may look familiar as it is a faithful copy of Liege’s city hall. Both buildings were designed by Pascal Barbier, an architect from Liege.
