Belfry and Hotel de Ville

A 47-metre-tall (154 ft) (133 steps) belfry stands in the centre of the town. From the top the Belgian border can be seen. The chime of the belfry is composed of thirty-six bells. A belfry (French:"beffroi") has stood on the site since 1346. The current belfry plays melodies every 15 minutes.
