Didn't have the opportunity to see the flowers, but the square is really worth anyway to visit. The palaces are enough to justify a visit.

Every corner of this square is dazzling and it hides a myriad of cobbled streets in all directions full of shops, waffle houses and historic buildings. The museum is also worth popping into.

One of the most beautiful and amazing places I have visited, it has an special charm, I visited Brussels during winter break and found it very magical, there was a beautiful lights and music show because of the season.

Whenever we return to Brussels we love to absorb the atmosphere. The Grand place is grand on its own, even empty, but once the bars and restaurants become busy it hums.

I had the advantage of visiting when the flower carpet was on display in the cathedral square and it was breathtaking. All of the buildings surrounding the cathedral are gorgeous.
