Cobbled square surrounded by beautiful buildings that are all old provides a great window on history. Nice place to enjoy a quiet beer

Our group liked puttering around the square. There is a concert being set up right now which impeded our panoramic view. That was a bummer. But overall it's a place you have to visit. Save the shopping and eating away from this tourist Mecca. Not worth it at all.

A must see! A beautiful square with wonderful architecture. Wonderful at all times of the day and magically lit in the evening.

The night view of this place is marvelous... Must come just for this and have a drink at the bars nearby (although the price is high, but worth it for the view)

Even after more than 15 years in Brussels we are still awed and amazed by the Grand'Place, be it on a casual stroll or business appointment, a visit with friends touring the city, or during one of the events, flower or light shows, with family or en tete-a-tete. And there are fun restos or brasseries to discover around. Hoping that... More
