Stunning palace reminds me of Buckingham as they have the same gates it's a lot calmer though as it isn't as separated from the public as londons Buckingham palace it has gorgeous front gardens and architecture. When the Belgium flag is flying above the centre of the oalace at the front it means King Phillip is in the country

The palace huge and the building is very nice. It takes a little walk from the city center or take a metro train. If flag is up in front of the palace, then king is in town. Palace is open for public during summer season, so check the calendar before you go.

A really beautiful place to observe and see up close. However, the exhibits within the palace were not as interesting.

Just opposite the Park on a very wide road. Though the building is well painted but the garden and outside areas are not at all maintained and it looks like an abandoned house!
