A lovely looking building, but lots of youth etc hanging around all day and night time which I felt devalued the attraction. Its right in the centre so hard to miss so you'll come across it when exploring.

Huge building unlike Stock exchange more like a historical huge architectural experience. Looks more like a museum, a very beautiful building which you can see passing by.

The Bourse is a beautiful looking building,the stock exchange building has a Greek look to it with its columns and amazing architecture and the lions guarding the entrance are the most photographed part of this gorgeous building. Day or night the steps of the stock exchange are packed with people sitting around,drinking,eating and chatting and generally meeting up. Set in... More

Looks like anything other than a stock exchange to be frank, this building is one of those attracting tourists.One of the first stock exchanges and dating back to years.Near the town centre and worth a walk.

Not too much to see here but take a stroll by it to see the classic "bourse" architecture (looks quite similar to the one in Paris and NYC). I went in December so there was a Christmas market all around it and it was all lit up! Very festive and puts you in the holiday spirit.

The stock exchange is a magnificent old building, nothing to see in the building itself though. Our guide said there were ideas being elaborated on what to transform it into and one of them is a beer market of some sort. I believe that would be a great scenario!

A Christmas wonderland, the whole building is lit up and playing music, plus the Christmas market was right outside. Stunning. 🎁
