This building is in a square filled with other beautiful buildings! It was stunning with all the stone design and just the massive size of the building. Great place to wonder around and try lots of yummy chocolate and BEER!!

If you are in Brussels than you have to see the town hall. It is a beautiful building and acts as a central point in the city. There are lots of shops in the vicinity and food items galore. Please take some time out to see this!

Like me and my friends, many of other tourists too took their time in taking the best of this structure from a far and from its outer premises. The detailing and the whole towering structure is impressive and hold to you for quite a long time. The ornate works all over the building actually makes for a great photo background... More

The main buildings (especially in the main square) are beautiful in Brussels. Grab a drink on the outskirts and just stare at them all afternoon!

The most eye-catchy building in the Grote Markt with great urban legend of its architect. However, love the sculpture ornamented in the front side and the gothic style. Beautiful building despite architectural flaws that made it very unique.

Beautiful building right in the heart of the grand plas. You cannot miss it. I would have never known that the arch in the center of the building is not centered with the tower. Take a look next time you visit.

The architecture of this building is truly impressive it's gothic style is gorgeous and its spire towers so high, it seems as if it will disappear into the sky.
