Majestic is the word that popped in my head the minute I walked into the Grand place. It was raining a lil but but it did not kill the beauty of this place. I was mesmerized.

The architecture was so beautiful. If you closed your eyes you can almost imagine yourself in another time period. The square was full of tourists but not overwhelming so. I walked past the square several times during my trip and it was breathtaking each time.

Nice building to look at. Lovely architecture. Busy area and lots of hustle and bustle with restaurants etc all around. Right in the centre of things.

Bit of a tourist trap but great central orientation for that part of city. View is breathtaking with all the gold leaf and the buildings. So much choice with the shops and museums all around.

The buildings are very beautiful, especially in the evening when they are illuminated. If the weather allows it I enjoy drinking a glas of artesanal Belgian beer and just observing the scenery.

It is a nice square, typical of many European cities. The buildings around are architecturally aesthetically pleasing. We were there around Christmas time, the buildings were lit with some beautiful lighting.

Architecture was stunning, quite a busy square with loads of side streets to go exploring. Would be fab in summer with a glass of wine and some people watching!
