When passing the Bourse, you should remember to check out the underground ruing that can be seen from the street level!

My jaw dropped when first I passed the Bourse: it is hosting a photographic exhibition, “The World of Steve McCurry”. This is one of several exhibitions of McCurry’s work currently showing around Europe. Even if you are unfamiliar with his name, you will be familiar...More

It's quite central and easy to walk past, even without looking for it, but the square in front of it is horrible. Pedestrianised, while still looking like a main road, with street cleaning trucks struggling to fight against the rubbish, lots of graffiti and beggars.

beautiful building but there are a lot of intimidating drunk people hanging around the steps here which makes it a bit uncomfortable to visit

Yep, it is a rather dodgy area, but it does have history. The former stock exchange now being used as an exhibition hall. Seems to be a major meeting place.

Be careful. The place is very dirty and almost never cleaned thoroughly. Drunk people are always spending the whole day on the steps of the building. The pedestrian street in front of it is mainly populated by weird and lewd people. And it gets worst...More

The Bourse is definitely a treasure with its gorgeous neoclassical facade, friezes and sculpture, some of which are Rodin's early work. It's also a popular gathering place with people sitting on the front steps to watch the world go by or listen to street musicians...More

We cam across this this during our walking tour. Its a huge building with quite some history. Our tour guide mentioned that this building was no longer used as a Stock Exchange and will be converted into a beer museum in the future. ;-)

Not open the day we visited but the outside of this huge structure is impressive from all sides. Be sure to add it into your city tour.

A great place to soak up the atmosphere and have a beer or a nice dinner which is less touristy than grand place.
