Grand Place. Feb 13, 2018
Grand Place, or Grote Markt (in Flemish) is the main square in Brussels.

This beautiful square was first laid out after the construction of the town hall (1402-1455). On august 13th 1695 it was bombed to ruins by the French. In the following four years the city guilds rebuilt it.

Today it is surrounded by several guild houses from the late 17th century, by the town hall and the Broodhuis (or Maison du Roy). Some guild houses house restaurants or cafes.

The Maison du Roy houses the City Museum. There you can see the collection of costumes of the Manneken Pis.

Amazing place Dec 26, 2015
So I happen to be sucker for architecture so my first few minutes here I spent with jaw dropped and kept repeating 'wow' to my friends. I could sit and stare at those buildings for hours. You have not been to Belgium unless you have visited Grand Place. Looking and admiring is free :) I would strongly recommend to visit Grand Place as early as possible to avoid the huge rush of people which lasts throughout the day and evening. Although, visiting in the evening is a must too. Evening lights are amazing . The heart of Brussels

Spectacular Square in Brussels May 03, 2011
Grand Place Brussels is a must see for anyone spending time in Brussels. Immerse yourself in this vast cavity in central Brussels, decorated by 360 degrees of architectural glory. Whilst there why not drop into some of the friendly chocolatiers for a taste of heaven.

Grand Place-Brussels Apr 17, 2011
Brussels is the "capital of Europe", you can find lots of big corporate multinational companies, European Parlemant, NATO...etc, not so much sight seeing.

The most busy & exciting place in Brussel is the "Grand Place" whcih is some old buldings repreasenting the heart of the old city, where you can take nice pictures, buy souvenirs & chocolates, also there are LOTS of sea food restaurents.
