The stock exchange is a magnificent old building, nothing to see in the building itself though. Our guide said there were ideas being elaborated on what to transform it into and one of them is a beer market of some sort. I believe that would be a great scenario!

A Christmas wonderland, the whole building is lit up and playing music, plus the Christmas market was right outside. Stunning. 🎁

The Bourse and the area around it is one of the most interesting in Brussels. The building was erected from 1868 to 1873, and mixes elements of the Neo-Renaissance and Second Empire architectural styles. Great numbers of famous ornaments and sculptures, created by famous artists, including Rodin.

The Bourse was only a 100m or so from where we were staying with the Metro station there providing our access to and from the train station. The building itself is substantial and architecturally interesting with the steps out the front providing asort of local meeting and gathering place. When we visited tributes to the Brussels terrorist attack victims were... More

The Brussels stock exchange is nice but somehow it looks like all stock exchanges built in the 2nd half of the 19th century in Europe. It is located near the "Grand Place".

One of the oldest stock exchange in the world. The building is very beautiful and may be a good place to take some rest.
