It is indeed the most beautiful square in Europe - just seat in a café and admire it. Do not miss the sound & lumière.

“As if you could come to Brussels and not see the Grand-Place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Amazing place. Grandeur of the old days with the vivid life of our modern times. Mid-august you can admire for 3 days a huge flower carpet. In December it gives place to the christmas decoration. Since mid 2013 LED-lights enlight the buildings all over, in some occasions they compose a sound and light show.

“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Without doubt the most spectacular Grand-Place in Europe... Not just the architecture, but the pubs (the "Delirium" is a must visit!), the Beer Museum, the side-streets (including the Manneken Pis of course), the covered shopping arcade, the Bourse and the shopping at Rue Neuve...

“An astonishing old place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

I was there on a Friday, an it was a perfect timing, there was not much going on, it was ideal. After that I was there on a Saturday - the place was crowded, there were a lots of tourist. I recommend to avoid the weekends, visit this amazing place on weekdays!

“A place to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Probably one of the most beautiful place of the world, I am from Brussels and I recommend this Grand-Place to anybody visiting. Around the Grand-Place you can find lots of nice places to eat or to drink one of our famous beer.
