Lovely palace

This is a beautiful palace in the heat of Brussels. Well worth walking around it and experiencing the front view as it is architecturally fascinating.

Ful and touristic, but part of Belgium history, so far affordable...... Only to be seen for around 4 week sin summer, so follow the guidelines in internet. Parking free on Sundays, directly in front of the Palace if your are lucky.

Sculptured gardens. We did not tour, just walked around the outside and admired it from the sidewalk. We walked from the back side of the property and admired how well kept it was.

A large palace placed in the beautiful royal quartier of Brussels. It is nicely decorated for Christmas but entrance is not allowed, only few days per year. However, there is plenty to see in the area.

Was interesting to get a chance to look around the palace and learn a bit more about the Belgium royals. Many rooms were like other stately homes you could visit with key furniture set out to look at as your shepherded round by a rope barrier.
