The basics

Visitors purchase admission tickets and tour the Halle Gate on a self-guided basis: reading the information panels in Flemish and French as they explore or hiring an English-language audio guide for a small extra fee. Spread over five floors linked by a spiral staircase and elevator, the museum offers different and interactive perspectives on medieval Brussels’ defenses. Delve into the basement armory to see original armaments, learn about the city’s guilds, view old city maps and models; and walk the battlements for bird’s-eye city views.

Those interested in seeing Halle Gate as part of a wider exploration of Brussels can opt to purchase a Brussels Card to save money and facilitate their sightseeing. The pass entitles holders to free admission to the gate, and many more of the city’s highlights over their chosen 24-, 36-, or 72-hour period.
