  • 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.

  • Monument you meet along the avenue toward Leaken Park Royal, consisting of a tall column topped by the statue of King Leopold I. At its base lies the tomb of the unknown soldier with eternal flame.

  • 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
  • Historical site in center of the city of Brussels

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
