Town Hall

Maastricht (Limburg), Netherlands view map

No need to convert to B+W, on this dull day there seems to be a total lack of colour.
How different will that be within a few weeks time, as the carnaval is in full swing... ;-)

Built 1659-1685 by Pieter Post. This is a very symmetrical building to reflect the dual authority with both the Prince-Bishopric of Liège and the Duchy of Brabant (Dutch States General from 1632) holding joint sovereignty over the city.
Both resided at opposite sides of the building.

Mooi symmetrie en mooi bijna monochrome.
