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.

I loved it! it was beautiful and full of activity and shops all around, we also stopped by later that night and it was so romantic, the moon was full and the Grand Place was lit up on a rotation of different colors, I very much enjoyed being/seeing this great square. Don't miss it.

The buildings... just stand there and get impressed by the beauty of it all. Great that no traffic is allowed.

The whole GranPlace is covered with flowers for a few days.
It is an event that takes place every 2 years in August.
Every time there is a special theme.
Plan your trip at that time; it is worth seeing

All buildings are gilded and fantastic when lit at night.
Chocolate stores and brasseries line the sides.
Great area to just walk and have a great Belgian beer in one of the cafes
Beware of the cobblestone!

It's a neat place to visit, but don't expect to be awestruck. There are some nice chocolate shops and bars etc right off the grand place.
