This is a must-see. It is spectacular in the evenings when the light shows are visible. If you are in Brussels you must see it.

During the winter season, when it's getting dark you can see some kind of light festival. On the buildings you can see colorful lights which are changing with a music rhythm. It looks amazing! And also nearby a Christmas Markt takes place. When the music is off it also looks amazing!

Being Belgian, I normally don't spend too much town on the Grand Place - nice but something for tourists. However, a few nights ago, I had to go there for a meeting.

Brussels... As expected it's a fairly nice place to be but unfortunately if you have a disability and you're not able to walk or at the very least use crutches then you're going to have a problem. As a birthday surprise I brought my partner who has to use a wheelchair to see the Christmas markets, as it was our... More
