Mostly from the 17. century the guild houses on the Great Square were restored wonderfully. On the ground floor it usually has restaurants with a seat also in front of the restaurant which invite to drink and relax.

Part of the excellent Grand Place square. All buildings are equally spectacular and worth a visit. Visit by day and night and see the difference in ambience.

Visit here at any hour of the day. Come several times so you can see them in all their changing colours, day and night.

The Guildhouses are what really makes the Grand Place what it is. An impressive square, probably one of the most beautiful in the world. Beautifully restore and back in their splendor. Not to be missed.

With their newly renovated facades, the guildhouses glisten in splendid majesty. At least, even with the crowds, you are looking upwards and so get an undisturbed view !

Just stunning, these gorgeous houses around the great market square. Don't know if you can actually visit one of them, I mean apart from the shops and restaurants on their first floor.

These fifteenth century buildings are beautiful, and it is no wonder people just stand and start for long periods of time.

Wonderfully renovated and nearly perfectly preserved, the guild houses around the Brussels Grand Place are a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the city. Conveniently located around the Grand Place in the touristic center of the city, it is impossible to pass by without noticing them. In the evening, the Guild Houses and the Town Hall itself are beautifully lit by... More
