    Court House

    Another beautiful (Flemish style) building at the Grote Markt in Ieper is the Court House.

    It is located at the other side of the Grote Markt, so if you are looking towards the Cloth Hall and the City Hall, just turn around and voila . . . . There it is the Ieper Court House.

    This Court House is built by Arch J. Cooman in a Flemish renaissance style.

    Before the Great War (First World War) this was the location of the hospital of Our Blessed Lady.

    Completing the square with the Court House

    The Iepe Court house ends the Market square

    Before it became the Court House of Ieper in 1841, this was the palace residence of the Ieper Bishop. Then it became for a while the Saint Elisabeth Hospital and after the utter ruining in the Great War it was rebuilt with as purpose the house of justice. This building too was resurrected under watchful eye of architect Coomans and finished in 1929. It is a somewhat strange combination of renaissance and neo-gothic styles, but that was already present in the original.
