Today it was covered in scaffolding so we could not get a great view, but it looked like a really impressive building with great architecture.

The building from the outside looks like a seat of an empire, which was deserted and left to rot 30 years ago. Bushes and grasses growing out from the cracks in the walls, windows planked through, all looking like a set from a horror movie....More

The most important court of law in Belgium, this building isn’t much to look at from the outside because of the ongoing renovation works. It’s free to enter and it’s really here that you can see the building is heavily influenced by Neoclassical and almost...More

This place has free entry and you can spend hours here walking and admiring the architecture. You will need good walking shoes as the space is huge. Some parts are blocked due to restoration work but that should not dampen you to visit this place.

It is impressive and beautifull but sadly the construction is well underway and most of the building is closed and hidden by so many materials its hard to picture properly

Although there is scaffolding around the exterior, the foyer area is worth taking a look for its architecture. A bit of a shame that parts of it was vandalised by graffiti. The interior is worth peering around too; do note that you will have to...More

The scaffolding has been around this building for ages. It's a massive building on a hill, so gives some good views across Brussels. The building is still a working one, so there is security, but it's worth heading into the foyer area to look at...More
