Do visit if open!

The Belgian monarchy may not be as famous as the British one, but the Royal Palace is a must-see of Brussels, especially around May-June when open for public.

I went during the winter, so we couldn't go inside, but the outside made for some good pictures and the park in front of it is a nice place to visit as well.

Really lovely building to see. Very grand. Not a lot to do around it but worth the visit if you can. Slightly uphill walk, but nothing too hard.

if you are in Brussels, this is a must see. Ok, it is just a building, but it is a very beautiful building. You can also visit the parc right in front.

An amazing neoclassical building, in summer you can visit inside unfortunately I was visiting Brussels during the winter season so I just had the view of the main front, this place is well worth visiting.

It's a large palace filled with tourists usually all the time. Have so many ancient artistic and valuable collections for those who love collectibles.

I only walked around the palace and went to the park next door and it was quite fun to do. It's an interesting and pretty building. Would recommend taking a look
