If you only had time to see one thing in Brussels it would be the grand place. So beautiful but be prepared for the crowds

Even without the carpet of flowers, this square is simply gorgeous. I have rarely seen such architectural bling as the golden enrobed buildings in the Grand Place, Brussels.

It's a must do if you're vistinf the city. The building is asymmetrical that's what makes it interesting. If you want to take photos, I would sugggest going to the square in the evening as everything is beautifully lit up

I was lucky enough to be here last August when the Carpet Flower was out in Grand Place! They do this every 2 years and at night they have a light show! It was absolutely beautiful! I love the gold foil paint on the buildings and overall atmosphere. I visited this spot frequently during my time spent in Brussels!
