Justice Palace (Palais de Justice), Brussels

(3/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Huge but maybe a bit neglected, this is the impression that I did. Interesting area, the view from the terrace is remarkable, beautiful even the lift down at Marolles.

  • Not a distance slightly away from the center of the walk to access by tram. The Court here is Greece Temple reminiscent. I think in March 2017, exterior renovation inside could go up the stairs and the stately building that you can see. You can get for free on the inside of the building. Passes through the door of the main entrance, and tourists get advance security checks right. After the security check, to roam freely around the inside. Was just inside as it may seem impressive, most likely. Looks or open the courtroom door, look to have done what a court is, but not that Japan very much. And had great view of others through word of mouth, and like the Observatory is looking for, but probably outside the building (towards the main entrance on the right side) to refers to an observation area.

  • The building dominates the entire city of Brussels. The scale of the building, although always with scaffolding, does not cease to amaze. This building of the 19th, is spectacular. The interior with its great hall, you dwarfs. In this hall, it is the Tower of the Town Hall. It is worth to visit and give a return by this grandiose building.
