"The Bourse is an architectural marvel" Brussels Stock Exchange Tip by RovingWombat

Brussels Stock Exchange, Brussels: 28 reviews and 42 photos

  La Bourse

I walked around the Bourse (the old stock exchange) a couple of times just to soak in the architectural detail... impressive carvings all over, and each one of them different and symbolic of something. I didn't go inside, and am not sure about when one can and can't, but the walk around is a great photo opportunity. On one street that went by it, architectural excavations were exposed through a plexiglass sheet. Interesting stuff!
