"Grand Place" Grand Place - Grote Markt Tip by LTKC

Grand Place - Grote Markt, Brussels: 211 reviews and 365 photos


This was the most beautiful square that I have ever stepped in. Don't miss it.

To the right of the building there are some chocolate and cookies stores. If you want to buy something to take home, try to get them in bulk. They should come in the carton size but not in the decorative/retail package. This saves money. Be ware that some shops would not allow you to use the credit card unless you spend up to a certain amount.

Restaurants on this square are pricy but fun. You can sit, eat, drink beer and people watching. It is leisure at its best. Oh, the beer is wonderful and strong. I've gotten two glasses and I was on air!
