About Grand-Place

The heart of Brussels beats strongest in the Grand-Place, a breathtaking square surrounded by opulent guildhalls, the striking Town Hall, and the King’s House. This UNESCO World Heritage site is more than just a tourist destination; it's a grand stage where history, architecture, and Belgian culture blend into a spectacular show of beauty and heritage. Walking through the Grand-Place is like wandering through an open-air museum, where every cobblestone, facade, and gilded corner has a story to tell.

Best time/season to visit:
While stunning year-round, the Grand-Place reveals its full splendor in August during the biennial Flower Carpet event, transforming the square into a kaleidoscopic floral masterpiece.
