When visiting Brussels, Grande place is the place to be. A collection of regular events (Flower carpets..), life, culture, antique buildings makes it a unique experience while enjoying lightshows and a nice set of Belgian fries once it gets dark.

Yes you can go at central taking metro 1-5 one stop. You can go also to Bourse taking the tram 3-4 ( pre metro) one stop. From your hotel is 10 min walk for the Bourse and Gare Centrale.
