Second visit to Brussels. First time was right after the terrorist bombing. Very sad and the Course served the city a a place to mourn. Six months later on a business trip the Bourse was the center of the Christmas Markets. Perhaps an example of the strength of the Belgium people.

The Bourse hosts some expositions, but otherwise you cannot really go inside and visit the building. Worn out exterior, dirty front steps (there's a MacDonalds restaurant in front of them, thus a place to eat your take-out), and common place for drug-and-alcohol related activities.

I enjoyed the Steve McCurry photo exhibition at the Bourse. The audio tour enhanced the experience a lot. I don't know how representative it was of the building's activities as a whole, but it was well worth the price of admission.

I went to see here the expo of Steve Mc Curry. I was so amazed!!! What a nice collection of pictures and what a great stories behind the photographs!! You can visit it till the end of june 2017!! It's a must do when you are in Brussels!! The stairs before the building is a meeting point.

A lovely looking building, but lots of youth etc hanging around all day and night time which I felt devalued the attraction. Its right in the centre so hard to miss so you'll come across it when exploring.

As a tourist I've never been inside this building, but from the outside it is impressive with its pillars and sculptures. The stairs are also good for pausing and resting in this busy city.

The Bourse is a beautiful looking building,the stock exchange building has a Greek look to it with its columns and amazing architecture and the lions guarding the entrance are the most photographed part of this gorgeous building. Day or night the steps of the stock exchange are packed with people sitting around,drinking,eating and chatting and generally meeting up. Set in... More
