Truly breathtaking when approached via one of the many narrow alleys that lead to it. It is worth sitting down and soaking it all in. Have a guide book handy so you can read about all the different guild halls

Expect a lot of tourists with selfie sticks. Best to avoid all the bars and restaurants here, as they will set you back a lot of euros.

Unlike many large cities, there are only a few cafes in the market area. It's nice to sit and watch people. Look at the town hall and notice that it is not symmetrical. Looks at the difference in Windows from one side to the other.

The Grand Place is a must see in Brussels. We go with all our visitors there and all of them have been very impressed. The landmark of downtown Brussels!!

Pictures on Google maps don't do it justice. Needs to be seen with the naked eye! Amazing architecture

You have not been to Brussels if you have not seen the Grand Place. Beautiful and magnificent with multiple activities taking place throughout the year here. Enjoy a beer while sitting and listening to jazz music.

Not really but we stayed at The Augustin and were very happy. Their rooms are huge so maybe they have a double room. Don't know what your itinerary is but I highly recommend Bruges and/or Gent and Sandemans free walking tour... More

I say the weather will be your worst enemy, but other than that, it's a lovely city and you should go ahead and visit it. Transportation is easy, so don't worry about that. How safe it is can't be answered with the current... More
