Honestly one of the prettiest places I've ever seen, such a collection of extremely impressive buildings over looking on another, definitely worth a visit.

This square is amazing. The buildings are a marvel. If you are lucky like we were, you get to see a wedding party appear on the balcony & everyone cheers & claps. Magical

Excellent way to start our Brussels trip. Fantastic old buildings steeped in history and very neo Gothic. Best to view in the evening as the are all lit up

Thought I would have a quick look as I lived here for eight years a few years back. Never fails to impress me - a venue to be very proud of. Brings back a lot of memories but glad to be back living in the UK now.

We visited here during a wet and miserable grey day in the city but all the buildings were so pretty that even in the horrid weather it looked lovely! Can imagine this place would be stunning in the summer when the flowers are all out. Buildings are intricately designed with gold architecture. Well with checking out when in the city

Truly amazing square surrounded with gold leaf clad buildings. A must visit by day and night when the buildings are lit up.

This is a must see place. For architectural enthusiast like me, i am always surprised and consume about the process of creating such a complicated and beautiful structure. Very good place for an afternoon stroll, this time around i met with colleagues for coffee to show them around

Majestic is the word that popped in my head the minute I walked into the Grand place. It was raining a lil but but it did not kill the beauty of this place. I was mesmerized.

The architecture was so beautiful. If you closed your eyes you can almost imagine yourself in another time period. The square was full of tourists but not overwhelming so. I walked past the square several times during my trip and it was breathtaking each time.

Nice building to look at. Lovely architecture. Busy area and lots of hustle and bustle with restaurants etc all around. Right in the centre of things.
