It's a must-see

Splendid building. Visit Brussels and don't go to Grand-Place would be the worst mistake you could do.

Lovely architecture in the heart of the capital city. The Town Hall is also worth to visit inside (€5), you can choose a language guided tour. The tickets are available on the day of your visit. The main square, the Grand Place where the Town Hall is located, is great to visit during the day but the most exciting is... More

Actually its just located in the center of city so its inevitable to see at least once. Especially in the evening all buildings around it are lit up.

The town hall dominates the square in all its historic glory. You'll definitely want to spend some time getting a few good shots with a professional camera before exploring inside. Lots of restaurants surround the town hall so it's really easy to grab some good food after a tour inside.

In the town hall you will find the museum of the city of Brussels. It is a small museum and mainly consists of old paintings and some models of the town. Considering the entrance fee (€8) it is a bit poor. The building is nice on the inside (very old), but the exhibition is not worth your money or you... More

Located right on the main square in Brussels - the Grand Place. You can't miss it. Amazing architecture. Good for taking photos.

The town hall is in the Grand Place, impossible not to see it! It's a gothic building from the 15th century. The typical story says something about the structure of the building (it's wrong) but it's not going to be me who tells you the truth, you just need to stand right in front of the building and you'll discover...
