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.

  • Nice square, some beautiful buildings with the famous town hall! Plenty of cafes around as well as some other tourist entertainment, with the information centre & tours starting here. Worth a visit.

  • 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..
  • Super busy, all of the time. But the majesty of these well kept buildings shows that Belgium has been a global player for centuries. And they can pay the bills to keep things nice. Definitely a city worth visiting multiple times.
