“Visually outstanding.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

When we were there, a series of concerts were going on every night. There were food stands, drink stands, and drunks not standing.

It's such a special place, just to stand there and gaze is an honor. Looking up at the buildings, seeing all the carvings, and absorbing the atmosphere was quite memorable.

“To be seen and felt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I'm sure all has been said about this unique square. Nevertheless, I can say that it is a must for everyone. It is rare to find a European capital that preserves such a convincing original and alive setting. Although there is enough modernism in town, you do feel the history and tradition very much alive in the architecture, condition and ambience of the Grand-Place and the old town around it. Take your time to enjoy it from every angle, look carefully in the yards and windows and beware of the touristy shops and restaurants around. There is "food" for everyone, regardless of age or culture.

“Grand and imposing square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

It is full of tourists but an impressive ensemble of buildings. I had come to see the christmas market here years ago. We rushed through it en route to the fashion district.
