Ghent city hall Entrance.

The Reception Salon was thoroughly renovated in 1728-1729 and refurbished with, among other things, a beautiful stucco ceiling. The space was later decorated with portraits of the Habsburg princes and Austrian governors of the 18th century.

In the Arsenaalzaal you can see a beautifully painted wooden spit wall vault (1483). The monumental chimney against the southern wall is from a year later. The Throne Room stands out because of the paintings. Gaspar De Craeyer made three large paintings for the entry of Cardinal Infant Ferdinand as new governor of the Netherlands (1634). Jan-Baptist Van Volxsom immortalized the inauguration of Charles VI as count of Flanders (1717). Against the back wall you see a painting from Ghent turbulent years under Calvinist rule (1576-1584) on which William of Orange argues for the release of imprisoned Catholics.

I hope that you enjoy it
