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.

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..
Beautiful and very historical place to visit especially in December when sound with light show running on each day. That is awesome to see and the environment really cool. Highly recommended to visit this place. When you visit this place don't forget to buy chocolates from here and eating fresh waffles.
