    Xmas in Grand Place

    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.

    Brussels by Night

    Brussels is also lovely on the dark days before christmas, when there is a christmas market.

    There are a lot of nicely decorated houses on the Grote Markt like this one here.

    Guild houses

    On the peaks of the roofs you can see different statues that are symbols for the patrons of the guilds.

    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.

    A wounderful part of Brussles is the Grand Place in the center. There are some nice pubs and restaurants around.
