In BeNeLux countries there's always a Grand Place .. usually there are historic buildings (nice to view), a lot of tourists and restaurants, bars etc. Same here. A good start to explore the city or to eat and drink.

You can get a full 360 picture here from the middle of the square. I was bugged a few too many times by beggars, but worth a visit day and night as stated. It is full of people the weekend so watch your pockets.

A must visit if you are in Brussels. Lots of shops, fun people watching, interesting historic buildings. Late afternoon we had some dinner with mussels and good Belgian beer and then enjoyed the evening sites and lights.

A large square with many interesting buildings around it. It looked very pretty at night. Watch when walking on the cobblestones.
