Passed here at night, terrible pavement, would have loved to visit the park in front. Huge palace, but didn't have that royal feeling to it like for example Buckingham.
We were wandering the streets up by the Parc de Bruxelles and came across the Palace. So very grand. There were gardeners planting the pansies just over the fence for everyone to see. Not open in the autumn months but it was lovely strolling along the street and able to view it from the very grand "front fence". You can... More
The place where the royals live of course is magnificent with gold trims and nice architect. Since it was October when we went, the palace wasn't open so we just took pictures and enjoyed the view! It's next to the park and it's good for a short stop before or after u visit the park.
It was not possible ti enter inside. So we could see an outside monument, but nothing more. May be if you can visit inside one day it will deserve a qualification better
The palace is only open for a couple of weeks in summer, after July 21, when the king is on holiday. It is free to enter and when we were there, there were some people but no acutal queue, since you neither have to get a ticket, nor are there time consuming security checks. It takes about 1 to 1...

No problem. We walked right in; no real line. You can wander through all the state rooms and see the balcony where the... More
Very beautiful and free to enter, the Belgium Royal Palace is richly decorated and a must see, in my opinion. There was also an interesting exposition.
The Royal Palace is an enjoyable place to visit. It is free and opens at 10:00 AM. I visited on Sunday, September 1, 2013. There were various people visiting the Palace, but it was not overcrowded. The furniture, chandeliers (amazing !), windows and window treatments, carpets, writing desks, statues, all were exquisite. I have read elsewhere that the royal family... More
We visited the palace during the morning time, we were able to walk straight in without waiting. The tour takes you through the state apartments which were richly decorated and extravagant. We enjoyed looking at the lovely portraits of Various Belgian Royalty and the lovely display of clothes worn by the current King and Queen for the coronation. This is... More
