“Beautiful square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The square is beautiful. It's lovely to see the flower market in the middle, and there are lots of great places to get waffles nearby!

“Beautiful”

Beautiful, but most of the time crowded. Best time is to visit early morning so you can look all the beuty in peace.

“A Whole lot of Wow in One Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Several narrow pedestrian streets all empty in to this huge, gorgeous square. You can literally turn your camera in any direction from inside the square and walk away with a picture of a stunning building (or 2 or 3). I was with a tour so I did have a chance to stick around and take in the view properly, but definitely a must see if you are in Brussels!
