Justice Palace (Palais de Justice), Brussels

(460+ reviews on the web)
Government Building
Marvel at the magnitude of Justice Palace (Palais de Justice), whose construction required the relocation of an entire community. The neoclassical giant remains an important center of justice and is often bustling with law professionals. The sheer size of the building commands your attention--it takes up an entire city block and is larger than St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Like St. Peter's, a gold dome makes the palace easy to spot from different points around the city, so you could use it as a marker to orient yourself to other attractions. There is no cost to enter the building, and you are free to roam the halls, as well as view the main courtroom. Watch for the imposing statuary by Pierre Armand Cattier in the entrance hall. Put Justice Palace (Palais de Justice) into our Brussels vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Brussels.

  • Amazing view right over the very heart of the city, monumental building with many architectural details, easy to reach by elevator. The place is not clean, though.  more »
  • Worth the travel and waiting (sometimes light) security controls. Up to the first floor to see there solennellesur audience Hall.

  • It did not appear the best monument of Brussels, located in an area where you can see a large part of Brussels from the top of it, the truth is that the views are not very nice. The Palace of Justice filled with scaffolding covering completely the structure.
