Grand Place - Grote Markt, Brussels
The Grand Place is really beautiful, especially during some festivities. The buildings are nicely decorated with joyful feeling.
Even on a cold, gray October Sunday afternoon Grand'Place was teeming with tourists as well as locals out for a Sunday stroll. Please see the travelogue for details of some of the buildings.
A perfect example of neo gothics and guild houses. A close view on the facade of "Broodhuis" impressive building on the Market Place

Another side to the Grand Place. Just looking around this square you can see the history and beauty of Brussels.
The most beautiful square in all of Brussels. Some have even called it the most beautiful square in all of Euorpe.
On the peaks of the roofs you can see different statues that are symbols for the patrons of the guilds.
This is Brussels major tourist attraction. The buildings on this square are all beautifully decorated. The Town Hall is also located on this square.
This is the Grand Palace, everybody who's been to Brussels knows about this. Near this place is Manneken Pis or the famous statue of peeing little boy.
Probably the most beatiful square in Europe. OK, I haven't seen them all, but the architecture around la Grand Place is amazing. So is the flower-fair.
This is the Jewel of Brussels. Architecturally it is probably without match. Just magnificent. I cannot say more. It’s all just in front of you. Spend time here.
