The center of Brussels, Grand Place forms an imposing square of opulent buildings, including the city hall. Dating back to 1523, the city's main square was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1998. Take in the grand architecture of the guild halls, and take a tour of city hall. The square houses the Museum of the City of Brussels and the Brewers Museum, both of which give a good impression of the essence of Brussels. Despite its relatively small size, the square attracts more visitors than any other attraction in the European capital. Take a look at our Brussels tour itinerary planning tool to schedule your visit to Grand Place and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • I visited this attraction 2 times. in the morning and in the night and I'm sure my experience in the night was better  more »
  • Grand Place alone justifies a trip to Brussels. Beautiful especially at night and early morning when the tourists are less present and you can take advantage of the atmosphere and enchantment.
