Such a lovely building — it looks better from the back than most buildings look from the front.— KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
I imagine someone elegant and full of grace descending those wing-like stairs.
Love those steps. Someone could go up one side, then suddenly decide he/she doesn't want to go into the town hall and go down the other side. Slick!Nice afternoon light, right?
All things considered, I think I'd prefer to use this entrance. Those stairs are amazing!
You live in such a beauty.Please have a good new month and week as well.daily athens
Now that is a fine back entrance, n'est-ce pas? I would love to slide down one of those bannisters!Have a great week ahead, mon amie!Bises,Genie
What a fantastic, royal "City Hall!" I'd be tempted to call it the "City Castle!"
Wow that is the prettiest back side of a building I have ever seen.
It is remarkable, Ciel. Very beautiful.
I really like those curved double stairways reaching up a floor.It's such an odd architectural touch.
une vraie entree royale, elle est superbe , en plus avec cette lumiere
Une issue de secours pour les futurs mariés qui changent d'avis au dernier moment.
Tout frais et pimpant, l'escalier à double volée semble bien fragile et à peine accroché.Quand tu visites une ville et est dans le besoin, l'Hôtel de Ville t'offre des toilettes gratuites mais je n'ai pas essayé celles de Versailles.
This looks quite festive for a town hall. I guess it is supposed to make people feel better if they have to go meet with a bureaucrat to get a building permit or complain about their property tax.
That is a grand and very elegant staircase!
Great architecture and photo!Love it!
Lumineux : pour ce tenir éveillé ce lundi ;-)
Stunning town hall. The staircase is quite impressive.
A beautiful facade.
oh my - that is a spectacular facade.
gorgeous, especially in this light!
Great colors and a wonderful staircase.
Awesome, but do you know if the staircase 'came' with the building or was it added later? Outside staircases used to always be made of stone those days.
Wow, quelle elegance!
Hotel de ville .. when I lived in Brussels my family went to the hotel de ville to ask if they had any rooms for the night...!
@ JM: I don't know, I'll try to find out.
I wondered if the stairs were added later also. They do seem like they were. What a wonderful town hall.Sharon
This is gorgeous. I LOVE the staircases.
I cannot get enough of your architectures there! Just lovely!
