  • Typical early 19th century monument including plates for the soldiers fighting in WWs 1 and 2 and the grave of the unknown soldier and a flame. Impressive sight but not a must see.  more »
  • A small piece of a larger road is relatively inconspicuous on the column. Since it is unfortunately not free but is surrounded by buildings it looks not so solemnly as she should. Behind the pillar is a larger, free space from you, especially in the evening has a relatively good views over the city.

  • Is currently a reference point for the common citizens, adopting all your importance, because to have when there are official ceremonies. A little out of the tourist more routes, does not justify a movement there.

  • Memorial of important milestone in Belgian history. Very cool tall column, surrounded by lions and infinity fire. Definitely worth visiting!
  • DOV:20Feb2014 'Congress Column ' is a historical monument built to celebrate the release of Belgian constitution. It's one of the tallest column u will see in Brussels. There is statue of 2 lions on the both sides of the column. Underneath the column one of the unidentified soldier who died in world war 2 was buried and there is tributes being offered for the same. Recommend a pause here when u walk through Brussels city.
  • I come by every day. Could be nice if there is a chair. The ground is very cold.
  • Nice view. Nice place to visit
  • Very cool column with a lot of historical significance. There is a constant flame burning at the base of the column.
