One keeps looking in awe at all the beautiful guildhouses in the Grand Place. Colorful and well designed buildings have a long history. Most of them have restaurants on the street level. We had only two hours so it was a short visit to have...More

Absolutely beautiful. Well worth seeing it during the day or the night. All the buildings are stunning and clearly maintained to a very high standard. The golden paint of the buidings lights up the Grand Place when the sun hits it.

These houses are part of the Grand Place and they are, simply said, beautiful... It would be nice to have a tour guide who would tell me about their specific histories... one day!

Went out, a lot of pubs, different genres of music, police circuling around, so you feel pretty safe. During the day it's pretty colorful. Go and see it, you won't regret it!
