The whole square looks magnificent and breathtaking, no wonder our friend told us this is the most beautiful square in Europe. Surrounding area is full with great restaurants and souvenirs. If you love tapestry, Brussels is the best place that you should never missed!

This area is really beautiful with such fantastic architecture and majestic buildings. Also, there are lots of good shops for souvenirs and Belgian chocolates, that would be hard to resist. And loads of places to eat with a great view of the Grand Place.
