I was shocked at how amazing the Palace was. This wasn’t on the top 10 things to do list for many people. However, it was easily one of my top 3 things to do. The one room I have photos below of was mind blowing.

Worth visiting for the exterior alone at any time of day, this place provides some great photo opportunities and is right opposite one of the city's best parks.

If you are in Brussels this is one of the places to visit. See where the king lives. At certaint point of day you can see the exchange of the army.

Typical European architecture and set within the city. The outside is beautiful and overlooking a park.

It is much nicer to see the palace inside than from outside. It is not royal residence, because the kind and queen live outside of Brussels. It is like a museum and art gallery.

The king opens his gardens and greenhouses to the public once a year for 3 weeks. For 2.5 euro you can visit an impeccably kept botanical treasure, viewing plants from all around the world. If you like flowers you will love this visit. So many...More

I love this area of the city. After a long day of meetings or work nearby, I always found myself going here in the afternoon. There's Cafe Kitsune there where I got my coffee and chill on one of the benches in the garden. Art...More
