Was dissapointed in this building. I understand many old buildings need repairs made to them, but the scaffolding completley ruined the look and view of the building. Would love to see it in all its grace.

From the square you can see the entire city at the valley and even up to the Atomium. Nowadays there is also a bar as well. The Palace is not that chic and is under renovation.

When you visit Brussels and you are in the " must see " shopping street: " The avenue Louise ", you will see the " Justice Palace ". The building is old and inside you will see many justice rooms.
