Several Renaissance-style buildings, mostly built using the local light-coloured brick, adorn Veurne’s central market square, which make it one of Belgium's finest market squares. Among these are the city hall (Landhuis) and belfry, which is recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites in 1999.

The Veurne Belfry has been inscribed upon the World Heritage List of UNESCO in 1999.
This Belfry is part of the Renaissance style County House and dates from 1628. It is built on the foundations of its predecessor and symbolises - in this case - the administrative unification of the town and the historical Veurne-Ambacht (Veurne-County), introduced in 1586. The ornaments on its square body are late gothic and the superstructure is octagonal regional brick, in contrast with the open work lantern and crown which is more like Renaissance or early Baroque.
