Beautiful area to visit in city center

During the holidays they have a light show in the plaza that is quite amazing Plenty of restaurants, shops, waffle shacks. Lovely area.

This is probably one of the most liveliest places in Brussels... At night there is so much activity going on... the Town Hall itself is impressive. You could sit at one of the cafes and enjoy the ambiance while watching people!

I got to be outside the town hall at night it's quite impressive architecture. The surrounding buildings are also very nice. During the Christmas season there's a tree and a big nativity scene.

This is perhaps the most asymmetrical old building I have ever seen. Even the main arch is not in the centre aligned properly. But look nice on the whole. The square itself is very attractive. They try to say it is purposefully asymmetrical but it has no beauty in it.

I rate the Grand Place as one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. On a wet winter night, snow falling, group atmosphere and the Manger with live sheep. The buildings of gold facade, stretching over you, surrounding you. Is a sight to behold.

The Grand Square in Brussels is a must place to visit at night. Hopefully there won't be any construction going on to mar the beauty of the square.

I think it is one of the most beautiful square in the world. Every corners you look is beautiful. They have night light shows at night. There are a lot of beautiful shops selling chocolates and laces nearby the small cobble lanes.

It is the most beautiful building in the Grand Place. Especially the light show with music is a must see especially in summer.

Look at this building hard and you will see its beautiful flaws. It is not symmetrical in length, the door is not aligned, the windows and ends are built by different people. Wonderful! It is a stunning structure that dominates the square. At night there is a light show not to be missed. Thanks for the vote if you found... More

Very impressive architecture, right in the main square in Brussels. Very busy in the square, but definately worth seeing.
