Grand Place - Grote Markt, Brussels: 212 reviews and 367 photos

All the tourists in Brussels go past the Carrefour de l'Europe, a wide open space between the Grand' Place and the Royal Galleries which is filled with fast food venues, hotels, cafés and souvenir shops and lined with buildings made to look old.

In the centre of the square, a small antique market is held in the mornings around the sitting statue of Mr Buls, one of the city's most famous mayors.
