though i did not go inside this building is worth seeing very near to war memorial and an opportunity to get panoramic views of Brussels

It looks like an impressive building but unfortunately is now full of scaffolding, and you cannot even go inside to see. However, it's worth going there as the surroundings offer and overlook of the city. ‎

This building is beautiful, inside and out. Unofrtunately there was a lot of construction work going on while we were there but it doesn't really take anything away from the grand building. I would recommend going and exploring the inside as it is rather breathtaking....More

This was the highlight of our weekend in Brussels. The building is awe inspiring. The atmosphere inside is like something out of a movie scene. Get here early and enjoy a wander around the beautiful neighbourhood afterwards.

This vast, rambling building occupies a height which gives a fantastic view...otherwise it is shrouded in scaffolding, though the dome has recently been refurbished.

Well worth a visit if in the area. The building is impressive from the outside and symbolic of European Justice.

Ok, it is an impressive building in eclectic style but what a dissapointment once inside. Actually it starts on the outside with the scaffolds that have been there since over 30(!) years. They are in such a bad condition that they need to be restored...More

A stunning building (Europe's biggest courthouse the guide book told me) and incredibly huge, it's well worth a visit even just to be dwarfed by its scale. The views from it are also great, you can see all the big sites and the rest of...More
