    The Centre Of The Old Town

    by viddra Updated Sep 9, 2005

    This is where the centre of the old town is located. It's dominated by the marvelous Town Hall, opposite the King's House, and surrounded by ancient guildhouses of the 17th century.

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