Brussels’ Grand Place (Grote Markt) is the focal point of the city, a tirelessly uplifting masterpiece of unified architecture. Flanked by tightly packed rows of farmer guildhouses, bristling with symbolic sculpture and gilding, for many centuries this was the proud economic and administrative heart of the city. It was the setting for markets and fairs, pageants and jousts, for the proclamation of decrees, and public executions. Even without its old political and economic prestige and the bustle of through-traffic, it still throbs with animation.
During a typical December night, you will feel like you are in a fairy tale here.
