From the square you can see the entire city at the valley and even up to the Atomium. Nowadays there is also a bar as well. The Palace is not that chic and is under renovation.

When you visit Brussels and you are in the " must see " shopping street: " The avenue Louise ", you will see the " Justice Palace ". The building is old and inside you will see many justice rooms.

This is a very grand building, unfortunately the exterior covered in scaffold due to renovations, with no sign of completion. The foyer is massive, the architecture is in the greek revival style. Worth a visit just for the wow factor alone.

This building has left a huge impression on me. The scale is incredible, I could walk around it for hours. It is an easy 10 min walk from the Grand Place and you can get an elevator up the hill. Totally worth it. It gave...More

This has to be one of the most unique buildings I've ever seen: neo-classical marble columns, sculptures and atriums, all covered in multi-coloured graffiti. If you approach it with an open mind, you will find one of the most beautiful, striking buildings in Brussels.
