Worth taking a look. It's huge!

We had some time to eat, and this place did not disappoint. I don't think they actually let you in, and it was kind of dirty, but the archetecture was absolutely stunning.

Buillding at the top of the hill with a fome you cant miss. its massive but when you walk out the square gives you a good view of the city as well. Bits are under scaffolding but its still a good spot to check out

The architecture and size of this courthouse is amazing. It's definitely worth stopping by to take a look inside and out. You have to go through security when you go in but you can walk around all you want.

I travel quite a bit, so there are very few things that blow me away. The Palais de Justice did just that. Although it was under construction, the architecture of the building left me completely speechless. I went at night, first, and walked through it a bit and the entire way around it. I was so captivated by it that... More

The stunning building stands right by Louise station where Stromae's 'Formidable' has been filmed. Not the best on a rainy day, but by far it gives the best panoramic view over the city (yupp, better than the one fro the Atom). Favourite outdoor spot to hang in town if you ask me, a 5 minute walk from Central Station,Mont des... More

While this building with the gold dome can be seen from a distance, once close it is covered in scaffolding. It is an impressive size so I'm sure will look spectacular when finished.

The building is unbelivable big and when you stand outside you really do wonder if it's OK to venture inside - especially as there were several soldiers on the outside fully armed. Turned out it was perfectly fine just to wander in, go through a security check like in an airport - and then you can Walk around on your... More

The architecture is beautiful! I had a specific interest, working in law myself, but would recommend visiting the building regardless. The views of the city are amazing from high up here!
