A fantastic place filled with tourists. If you want to see tourist groups walking slowly - visit Grand-Place.

Buzzing with people, noise and charm. It consists of public and private buildings, dating mainly from the late 17th century. Architecture is varied and stunning....if you are visiting Brussels the Grand Place is an absolute must!!! Beware eateries here are quite pricey, go for a walk in the surrounding streets and you will find something more reasonable.

This is one of the most sight and you can't miss it. It is grand, ancient and beautiful with markets on the weekends. It is also surrounded by restaurants, shops and chocolates!

The real central hub of the city, it is a must visit on your visit and I found it ideal to use as a point of reference in all my navigation to my desired destinations! It helped that my hotel, The Royal Windsor hotel, was just off the Grand-Place. The Grand-Place is worth visiting both night and day to see... More

It is "Grand" but quite more like a gothic jewel: explore all the secrets of each building and the high level of Belgian craftmakers

You have to visit this place just see the amazing architecture. Words can't describe it. Lovely feel to the square as well. Pity about the amount of litter and the amount of beggars though.

A large and beautiful square that surrounds you with 360 degrees of beautiful architecture. It's nice to sit at the patios of one of the cafes and enjoy a waffle or coffee. The amount of tourists may be a con to some though.
