beautiful architecture

beautiful building, with free walking tours every day starting from the town hall. But don't eat at a cafe in the square they are so expensive!

In the grand marketplace , one of the most beautiful buildings you will ever see. The entire square is breathtaking, but this is the main feature . A must see when in Brussels.

I loved it inside, gorgeous historical building with paintings (an original Tintoretto on the first floor), beautiful rooms and the guide was very good and knowledgeable. The visit lasts aproximately 1 hour, absolutely worthy.

Visiting The Grand-Place you cannot help but see the Town Hall. It fills one side of the great square, and it is a beautiful building. built in the typically ornate Flemish style.

All lit up and covered in trees, the town hall is a magnificent building. You can't miss it and it's a great photo opportunity.

It is very impressing to see the different pictures on the house. I would have a look at it when visiting Brussels. Quite impressing
