Create an itinerary including Grand Place
The center of Brussels, Grand Place forms an imposing square with opulent buildings, including the city hall. Dating back to 1523, the city's main square was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1998. Take in the grand architecture of the guild halls, and a tour of city hall. The square houses the Museum of the City of Brussels and the Brewers Museum, both of which give a good impression of the essence of Brussels. Despite its relatively small size, the square attracts more visitors than any other attraction in the European capital. Also there, Hôtel de Ville de Bruxelles. Take a look at our Brussels tour itinerary planning tool to schedule your visit to Grand Place and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • There is no way to visit Brussels without walking through Grand Place. Architecture is stunning. People watching with a cold Belgium beer in my hand was quite enjoyable.

  • It's a UNESCO heritage site that's wonderfully decorated with gold and statues. The pictures are not good enough to show how tall the buildings are. I visited in the afternoon, but I could feel that it'll look better during the sunrise and sunset. Must visit here in Brussels. Lovely ❤️
  • Most beautiful place in Brussels. Recommended to visit both during day and night times especially during Christmas. The music light sync is played and it’s absolutely beautiful and a treat to eyes. It’s extremely crowded most of the time except during early mornings..
