Just love being in the center of it, be it at night or during the day. The light show at at night was spectacular. There's so much chocolate, waffles and frite to enjoy, while admiring the beauty of the square

The Grand Place is the central square of Brussels and it's one of the defining landmarks of the city.

Beautiful townsquare, with magnificent buildings. The no 1 must-see in Brussels. If you are in town at night, you should be there if there is a light show. Beautiful (and free).

Beautiful! Especially the light show which occurred each evening during our visit. Make sure to go on a tour which tells you the history of this grand square.

An incredible place, not overly busy (we did go in Jan) but even still, amazingly quiet for such a large space. Surrounded by the most amazing architecture and some really nice cafes and restaurants.
