The whole square is beautiful. We didn't go inside. But just the outside view is fantastic. On a warm evening you will find people sat outside drinking beer in the square (it's legal to drink on the street here). So grab yourself some beers from the local shop and enjoy the atmosphere.

I went into it because, buying a ticket, there was the possibility of watching the Tapis du Fleurs from its balcony. The city's tourism department has done a great job with this cheap option, just 5€, and with a free iniciative, based on selfies and named 'Brussels and me', in order to promote the city. I'm visiting it or this... More

While this museum has several historical displays, we found the Manneken Pis' walk-in the most interesting attraction, with contributions from countries spanning the globe. Also worth a visit is a room full of hand-drawn maps and dominated by several architectural models of the city. The entrance fee is very reasonable, an audioguide is available to stream on a phone via... More

The Town Hall of Brussels is a strange unbalanced but beautiful old building with a central part holding together two wings of different design as if 2 different architects in medieval times were commissioned to do the design and nobody was appointed to supervise their work. The result is disconcerting with clear differences in the shape of window and even... More

The facade is iconic. A few tips: opposite on the Grote Markt/Grand'Place you will find the Brussels museum, hosting the full collection of Manneken Pis costumes ;-)). Few people know that since some time the inner courtyard at the right hand side can be walked through, an elegant way to go in the direction of that same Manneken Pis, and... More

This a beautiful building in a stunning square. Unlike the rest of Brussels this place was clean! Was always busy with people but a nice area to walk through.

We took the tour and learned about the city, about the building, and the art inside is very interesting. After staying in Brussels for about 4 full days, we found it to be the most interesting place in the city, and that shed a lot of light about Brussels and Belgium. A must visit - just lookout for the English... More

Very good place to visit. Interesting specially at night. It has multiple colors on walls which make this building pretty awesome. Nearby is also house of Marks and big field (no idea if this word is good for it) where you can sit with your friends, drink something and so on. Sad is thing that after attacks in Belgium and...
