Lovely building situated right on Grand Place. The architecture all around the Hotel de Ville is similar and makes the Grand Place a great sight.The building is beautifully lit up at night time and takes centre stage in the Place.

It is impossible to visit Brussels and not see it’s town hall because everything starts at the great park were the town hall is located. Read about the building history and then take a look at it’s architecture. Notice that the building is not symmetrical.

Visited beginning of February, and it started snowing in the evening which made for a great view together with all the lights. Atmosphere was very relaxed and fun, lots of locals and tourists just walking around, to all the restaurants and bars around.
