A brick-built edifice completed in 1921, the Old Town Hall, still houses several municipal departments. The Fountain in the city-centre is made of transparent resin; the shape is inspired by the Chinese lantern plant. The Carillon is a three-sided, openwork cube placed on a vertex that contains 38 bells. A special cycling route that takes in 34 special architectural objects is the best way of experiencing the rich tapestry of architectural styles and movements, building types and urban planning projects in Brunssum.
