Grand Place, Brussels

#1 of 3,362 in Things to do in Belgium
The center of Brussels, Grand Place forms an imposing square of 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 take 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. Take a look at our Brussels tour itinerary planning tool to schedule your visit to Grand Place and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Great for a few photos but very busy as to be expected and lost some of its charm with a Starbucks and Hard Rock Cafe there.  more »
  • I have a square in the center of Bruges only. That's where this historic Cathedral are around. Interacting with full. In a historic shopping center. When they make a square from the flowers of summer before I saw from up here on the streets. Chocolatier. A lot of it.. Real chocolate. Manneken Pis statue can go through this challenge.
