This Neorenaissance building was erected at Britselei to replace a smaller building at Groenplaats. The first stone was placed in 1870 and the result was a typical, impressive palace of that time. Unfortunately, in a city like Antwerp, it is not the only one of its kind… In 2006, it lost more of its glory when the New Placae of Justice was opened. Although some juridical authorities are still in this building, the future usage of the Gerechtshof is still not clear.
