It's what you see in the photographs, but when you get there, it is so much more. Grand 17th century architecture, gold leafed and amazing stone work. There was a festival going on (Brussels appears to go in for festivals) and the square was buzzing with people in strange costumes, but I guess it is always a lively destination. Worth visiting at night too.

Many people know and remember it with this name. They say in festival days there is flower show and it is not forgettable scene. I did not get in there on that moment but what I have found was, many stalls of florists which was icing on top with music in the air created by sun shine, old buildings, elegant cafes, smell of chocolate and pretty April weather.

This square is one of many in my list of places where you can sit for relaxation looking hundreds of people moving around you and take amazing street shots and you can also eat great food in afternoon for a day break. Must go place.

As all the other reviewers mention, the place is beautiful and it's wonderful to walk around and take pictures and soak in the area. So many different restaurants and snack places around.
