The very apply named grand place formed part of our tour around the city of Brussels. You will marvel at the amazing architecture on show and how beautifully maintained it is. Well worth a visit.

If you're feeling lonely you'll want to come here. Literally thousands of people crammed into every inch of this square taking selfies and wandering aimlessly around. Be aware of your surroundings and place your valuables where they cannot be grabbed by pickpockets. This is prime...More

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.
