The famous Royal Place, this huge building stands right in front on the main city park. This palace it doesn't occupy the top ranking list on Tripadvisor, well, I am not sure the if it is possible to visit it inside. So just standing in front of it so it could be annoying, so grab the camera, take few pictures... More

Really enjoyed this museum and wished I'd started with it earlier in my holiday to gain a really good perspective of Belgan history. The layouts are clear, the descriptions plentiful without becoming too detailed, and the chronological progression of rooms gives a first rate idea of the countries development and the fascinating history of each king, really bringing them to...

Beautiful place to visit if you're ever in Belgium. Lots of little cafes and stores, and lots of street performers around as well.

Beautiful place, must see in Brussels. Surrounded by cafes, restaurants and stores. Quite touristy, but a must when visiting Belgium.

A short walk from the Grand Place and the Central Railway Station, the palace reminds me somewhat of Buckingham Palace, but does look very different. Similarly there are military guards located inside the palace grounds just in from of the palace building. The gardens in front of the palace are very beautiful as is the palace. IT is my understanding... More

We were going to see the Living carpet but went to see this first. I could not get over all the chandeliers. Rooms were beautiful. Our favorite room had the ceiling made out of over 1 million beetles. My youngest thought it looked like a carpet at first. This room in itself truly amazing. This is great for anyone to... More

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. It isn't as big as the other royal residences around Europe (like that in Vienna). But, it is equally as fascinating, elegant and beautiful. for... More

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
