"enter Grand Place, the heart..." Grand' Place & guild houses Tip by Pegasus74

Grand' Place & guild houses, Brussels: 55 reviews and 67 photos


Favorite thing: <font face=verdana>enter <font color='008FFF'>Grand Place</font>, the heart of the city where I think Europe's most impressive market square is. The gothic church-like edifice of the <font color='008FFF'>Town Hall</font> and the <font color='008FFF'>Maison du Roi</font> (King's House) faces each other across the square, surrounded with baroque guild houses embellished by magnificent gables and sculptures. The latter houses <font color='008FFF'>Musee de la Ville</font> which covers the city's history and exhibits every piece of clothing ever worn by Manneken Pis. The facades of most buildings are of blackish-brown stone, against which the glistening ornamentation beautifully contrasts. I simply got <I>lost</I> in beauty on this square spinning around, around and around and around.
