A visit to this temporary exposition is well worth it. Well laid out, a "live" show, a film and very good narrative on every exhibit. I was inspired and now want to go to Chìna to see the other 9,900!!

We visited the Bourse as there was a temporary exhibition of artifacts from the Terracota Army. At this time of year the building is surrounded by the Christmas market chalets (opening 30th November 2012) which gives the area a nice feel although there is some building work going on outside too. The exhibition was fascinating (labels and some commentary in... More

History in a frozen state. The inside reveals what it used to be like before computers took over. Very close to the Grande Place and well worth a short visit.

The architecture is beautiful of course and it located very near the Grand Place. Unfortunately it also smells of urine more often than not. Many bums all around this area but it is the heart of the city after all.

The former stock exchange is well utilized for a wide range of functions. A beautiful spot to go in side and have a look at the magnificent interior - gorgeous ceilings and beautiful sculptures. Attended a beer tasting recently - great place to sample and take in the history.

Visited this place a few times, but always liked better the outside than the inside. Probably related to the contemporary needs of the stock exchange, but who knows what the future occupant will bring.

We spend most of our trip around this building. The building itself was closed (although down the side of it there is a glass viewing section to the ruins underneath) but outside there was always a colourful busker or 5. They were brilliant and it's a great place to have a little dance.

Just nice to see and say youv seen it. Nice steps to have a bite to eat/take a break if we didn't stay near it. Buskers around the back so much nicer.
