Beautiful but so are many places in Europe and Brussels. There are a lot of palaces and castles all over Belgium.

I was really impressed by the size of this Palace. The location is near center. It's just outside Central Park.

The Royal palace is about 10 mins walk from the grand place. It is a very nice building. During the month of August, people can visit the inside of the palace. We were there in July so could not go inside the palace. Nevertheless it was a very nice palace and worth a visit.

Each year during the month of August the Royal Palace opens its doors to the public. You can visit for free the main rooms. It's maybe not as richly decorated as "Le Chateau de Versailles" but a must do when you are during this period in Brussels.

I visited the palace in 1995. I was fortunate to have a private tour guide - the caretaker. A very interesting place to visit. The banquet halls are stunning. The history regarding the decor of the halls and the purpose of the banquet halls are extremely fascinating..

Beautiful building and worth a little detour to have a look. The area around it is equally interesting, with the musical instrument museum and other landmarks in the vicinity.

The Royal Palace would be a great start if you intend to know and learn about the history of Brussels as the palace provides very insightful journey into the history with its easy and comprehensive layout and timeline format. Make sure you have all the right documents along with you for the security procedures. The whole area surrounding the palace... More
