I visited it during the Tapis du Fleurs' weekend and I could not have chosen a better date to visit this awesome city. It was a sunny day, it wasn't overcrowded, the picture was very beautiful, the musicians and dancers were superb and the atmosphere was unforgettable. it ended with a spectacular Fireworks' show. What more could I ask for... More

Wow... What can I say? It's a grand place very similar to Hapmton court in terms of some of the grandeur you'll see. Costs nothing to go round which is amazing. You can hire a guide leaflet for 1 EUR or just walk round and admire the elegance. Takes anywhere from 30 mins to a couple of hours depending on... More

Another incredibly impressive town square, which is actually pretty easy to find – just follow the huge spire where is pretty visible from most parts of the city. Once you locate it – it looks like a spire of a gothic cathedral, but it is actually the town hall – it is generally a short walk here, and I must... More

Went there on the Flower Carpet Day. Excellent decoration and multicultural people always tend to be a added advantage.

Beautiful view. This place is pretty impressive and unique but not so breathtaking. Howevere there are lots of gypsies that will probably ruin the view.

The Grand Place is Brussels, and vice versa. Although there are other wonderful places to visit in the city, the Grand Place is the focal point of the city's wonderful history. Surrounded by fantastic architecture, free of traffic (at least wheeled traffic), the plaza is surrounded by shops and restaurants. Much of the quaintness of the shops has disappeared over... More
