Brussels gets brownie points from travelers not just for the city’s stunning architectural beauty, but for the great food and delectable desserts that Brussels is widely famous for. So you see, the city’s offerings are designed to appeal not only to your eyes but to your taste buds as well.
On landing in the city, the first place that you should visit is the Grand Place which is the main city square. While all the buildings within the square are pretty, however, the stunning town hall dominates the square along with former guilds flanking this majestic building on both the sides. After spending a few hours admiring the view, head to the Royal Palace. While the palace is no longer the residence of Belgium’s royalty, it is still a sight to behold. Built in Neo Classical style, the building is a little more than a 100 years old. Whether you are visiting the palace on a spring summer day or a snowy afternoon, it stands resplendent against the blue skies. Brussels is also home to The Church of Our Blessed Lady of the Sablon. This Gothic style church, best known for its stunning Baroque chapels, is located in the heart of the historic center of Brussels.
The next stop that should be on your list is The Palace of Justice (also called Palais de Justice). Never before would you have seen a court of law look as splendid and majestic as the Palace of Justice does.
As you wander the streets of the city, marching from one stunning landmark to another, you are sure to get a dose of Belgian humour.
