Oudenaarde Town Hall

Highly recommended
In Flamboyant Gothic style yet showing hints of Baroque, this building dominating its vast square is charming on account of its lightness of line and ornamentation. Arcades support the projecting belfry surmounted by the statue of "Jean le Guerrier". Inside, the municipal museum displays furniture, silver, sculpture and pictures. In the aldermen's hall, note the chmineypiece and fine door tambour (16C); upstairs, the lodgings of the "écouteur" (who recorded official meetings) has been recreated.
