Independence Memorial Gate, lit up by the evening sun
These flowers were stunning and deserved to be the star of a photo shoot
The reflection of some classic Belgian chocolate boxes in a chocolate fountain
All of this amazing waffle options, so little time…
Flower market blossoming in the sun outside of the “Brewers of the Grand Market” building
The “Guildhalls” of the Grote Markt
The star of the Grand Place, (the most famous spot in Brussels) is the Hotel de Ville, or Town Hall. Here it is in all its grandeur.
What makes this building beautiful is not just its size or style, it is the incredible detail in each statue.
This gothic style building is the King’s House and the is home of the most famous Museum in Brussels.
The most well known flea market in Brussels, Jeu de Balle. Although entertaining, it seemed as though most people just brought whatever they found in their basement and dumped it on the ground!
The Justice Palace, crowned in gold.
The Justice Palace, although perpetually under construction, is stunning in its imperialism.
The Halle Gate: huge, ominous, and almost 700 years old.
“The Cheese Market” street, named at a time when this entire area was a market. The above sign says “Whole Milk Street.” (haha)
This towering statue outside the Palais de Justice becomes just another lunch among friends.
Famous worldwide as the city of Comic Strips, these types of painting (comics) can be found throughout the city. Here is Tintin, Brussels most renowned cartoon detective, with his trusty dog Snowy and best friend Captain Archibald Haddock.
The part of town that we stayed in, St. Gilles, is eclectic, diverse, and has many hidden gems (like this Hotel De Ville/Museum). We enjoyed it very much.
Leaving you with this image of the most beautiful building in Brussels, glowing in the sunset.
