Owner description: Considered one of the most beautiful medieval squares in Europe, the ornate Grand Place is the center of Brussels, where many historic buildings dating from the 17th century are located.

If you've come to Brussels, chances are a visit to the Grand Place is high on your list. Soak in the architecture and wander around the cobblestone streets of the centre ville. Don't miss the fun atmosphere on the Rue des Bouchers and definitely drop into a brasserie or a pub to sample a Belgian beer.

We loved the bars in the square particularly the one with the full size imitation horse in is cannot remember the name but wery nice atmosphere
There is also a brilliant Resturant in the square you go downstairs to it don't remember the name very hard to find unless you know where to look however it is well worth looking for.
We found it on our 5th visit to the square

I like the towels of the synticats, all around and their story, which is really part of European history! Also codiva chocolates with strawberrys and there are a lot of nice places to have a beer or to eat nice typical food of Brussels, like "Rose blanche"!
