Beautiful architecture

As with so much of Belgium the architecture is amazing!!! Wish I could have seen the inside, but we were on a walking tour. Definitely a must see in Brussels.

This was a really cool area! We didn't go inside or take the tour, but it was really pretty. Very good little shopping area.

I like going to the Grand Place late evening and enjoy the lights performances on the town hall (sometimes accompanied by music) Great bars with Belgian beers around (i especially like le Roi d'Espagne) and chocolate shops ;-) Avoid as much as you can the restaurants for typical tourists (la rue des bouchers et la petite rue des bouchers are...

Beautiful to see, especially at night when its red coloured illuminated tower can be seen as a handy landmark from afar.

You can't visit Brussels without coming to see this square. Fantastic architecture, and places to sit and admire it. Quite busy so good to come in the morning when it's quiet!

Apparently this building was built in parts and hence there are lot of faults in it if you looks closely. Our guide explained that this is because it was constructed in two different time periods. It is bang in the Centre of the market area. Worth visiting

The Brussels Grand Place Town Hall is one of the major touristic attractions of the city. I advise to visit in the morning so it will be less crowded and you will be able to take better pictures. The golden ornaments have been renewed recently making it even more glorious. The Town Hall is surrounded by cafes and restaurants also... More

This Square is a must on any visit to Bruxelles. Itself is enough to warrant a visit to the city. Unfortunately for us our flight got diverted and we didn't have much time to explore the city on this day. There seem to be horse ride tours going that might be interesting and romantic now that we are coming to... More
