Grand PlaceGrand Place, or the central Market Square, is perhaps the best known attraction in Brussels.
The main market square is surrounded by the impressive Town Hall (constructed between 1402 and 1455), Guild Houses and the Bread House. The gothic architecture has to be seen to be believed, you really could spend hours just wandering around whilst staring up at the buildings. There are cafes scattered around where you can sit and watch the world pass by whilst enjoying a fine Belgian beer in one of the most beautiful market squares in Europe.
Grand Place was named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1998.
