Can't say you've been to Brussels if you don't experience Grand Place along with the shops, etc. The buildings here are quite incredible to see. Chocolate shops abound. Lots of luxury and other shopping very nearby.

A nice city center square with nice buildings around it. Do not go in restaurants on the grand place for they are traps.

Honestly one of the prettiest places I've ever seen, such a collection of extremely impressive buildings over looking on another, definitely worth a visit.

This square is amazing. The buildings are a marvel. If you are lucky like we were, you get to see a wedding party appear on the balcony & everyone cheers & claps. Magical
