This building has left a huge impression on me. The scale is incredible, I could walk around it for hours. It is an easy 10 min walk from the Grand Place and you can get an elevator up the hill. Totally worth it. It gave...More

This has to be one of the most unique buildings I've ever seen: neo-classical marble columns, sculptures and atriums, all covered in multi-coloured graffiti. If you approach it with an open mind, you will find one of the most beautiful, striking buildings in Brussels.

I'd not go out of my way merely to see this beautiful building, but it's worth dropping buy if in the vicinity. Interesting assemblies and demonstrations may be going on as you visit, as well.
