Fodor's Review

Dutch hellfire-and-brimstone painter Hieronymus Bosch could have had a field day with this one: lurking around one side of the Grote Kerk is the 16th-century Stadhuis, or Duivelshuis, which, strangely enough, suffered no damage whatsoever during World War II. The demonic sculptures on the building's facade were carved by order of General Maarten van Rossum, allegedly as payback for the city fathers' refusal to allow him to pave the front steps of his town hall with gold. The building has been part of the city hall since 1830—the remainder of that establishment is the ugly concrete monstrosity right behind.
