Create an itinerary including Grand Place
The center of Brussels, Grand Place forms an imposing square with opulent buildings, including the city hall. Dating back to 1523, the city's main square was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1998. Take in the grand architecture of the guild halls, and a tour of city hall. The square houses the Museum of the City of Brussels and the Brewers Museum, both of which give a good impression of the essence of Brussels. Despite its relatively small size, the square attracts more visitors than any other attraction in the European capital. Also there, Hôtel de Ville de Bruxelles.

  • Nice square, some beautiful buildings with the famous town hall! Plenty of cafes around as well as some other tourist entertainment, with the information centre & tours starting here. Worth a visit.

  • What a fascinating and remarkable place this is. Was really amazed to see the detailed work carved on all these buildings in this famous square. The buildings are about 400 years old but they will still give you the most amazing aesthetic view. You could go any time and stay around to get the beautiful vibes from this place. Loved it and is must visit place.
  • Stunning grand place! The guild houses are beautiful! Check out the town halls architecture. At first sight it look symmetrical but if you look closer nothing is symmetrical. The plaza is also used for open air events. When we were there the Jazz festival was taking place. Definitely worth a visit!
