We went here during summer where they open parts of the Palace to the public. I highly recommend anyone travelling to Brussels to come visit the palace during that time and take a look inside.

This area is definitely worth of visit. Lots to see and do. Easy to reach because of Metro Station(Park) and its central location near Central Railway Station and little walk from OldTown. Nice park in front of the Palace, so don't forget comfy shoes and camera

What a beautiful building! It's in the heart of Brussels near many of the major sites. It's a gorgeous grand palace that's not really used as the Royal residence, but still serves as a formal meeting place and for State functions.

The palace is beautifully located next to the Park. The building is impressive, with a beautiful garden and gilt wrought iron fence in the front. Usually there are not too many tourists around, which allows just to stare at it for while and take some well composed photos.

Definitely worth spending the time to go for a walk around this area. The palace is beautiful like most of the architecture in this city and some great photo opportunities. Go for a walk through the park opposite with is lovely and peaceful.
