An amazing neoclassical building, in summer you can visit inside unfortunately I was visiting Brussels during the winter season so I just had the view of the main front, this place is well worth visiting.

It's a large palace filled with tourists usually all the time. Have so many ancient artistic and valuable collections for those who love collectibles.

I only walked around the palace and went to the park next door and it was quite fun to do. It's an interesting and pretty building. Would recommend taking a look

Stunning palace reminds me of Buckingham as they have the same gates it's a lot calmer though as it isn't as separated from the public as londons Buckingham palace it has gorgeous front gardens and architecture. When the Belgium flag is flying above the centre of the oalace at the front it means King Phillip is in the country

A beautiful building of old architecture.Also full of history. If you have no time to visit inside,well worth seeing it even only from the outside for its historical value. Very impressive building well maintained.

The palace huge and the building is very nice. It takes a little walk from the city center or take a metro train. If flag is up in front of the palace, then king is in town. Palace is open for public during summer season, so check the calendar before you go.
