“Wait for the light show....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were there the first week of June so it gets dark very late. I had been told by a friend to not miss the light show at Grand-Place. We were in Brussels 4 nights. The first 3 we hung around Grand-Place but did not see a light show. The final night, we had a very late supper at a restaurant right on Grand-Place. At around 11 p.m. the light show finally began and it was nice! Worth the wait!

“Marvelous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

It is probably the most beautiful and impressive "place" in Europe, there are a lot of restaurants, where you may spend hours just enjoying the surroundings.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Its a very beautiful square, far more serene than most as it is almost free of traffic except when there are weddings at the Town Hall. The cafe scene is relaxing and really reasonably priced. We spent a long time there looking at the fantastic architecture and visiting the nearby restaurants and Museums.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Very nice buildings around the square. A lot of tourists around, but never mind. Very beautiful for taking pictures.
