The center of Brussels, Grand Place forms an imposing square of opulent buildings, including the city hall. Dating back to 1523, the city's main square was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1998. Take in the grand architecture of the guild halls, and take a tour of city hall. The square houses the Museum of the City of Brussels and the Brewers Museum, both of which give a good impression of the essence of Brussels. Despite its relatively small size, the square attracts more visitors than any other attraction in the European capital.

  • The Grote Markt in Brussels is a great place to see as a tourist an important icon of Belgium. Not only is it a large square with a lot of history, but it is surrounded by buildings with stories. Les Miserables is written by Hugo, but also Karl Marx has opgepend his ideas. Take care of an enthusiastic guide and the picture is completely complete.
