The Grote Markt

Belgium > Brussels

The Grote Markt, also known as La Grand Place, is quintessential Brussels, with opulent buildings like the city's Town Hall giving it a distinctive charm.  This central square was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1998 for its incredible blend of architectural styles ranging in origin from the 14th to the 17th century. 

De Grote Markt has served as a principal town square ever since the 12th century, when it was called Nedermarckt. As the centre of life in Brussels, it's home to a number of important cultural events including the Flower Carpet (a beautiful floral display organised every two years) and the Christmas tree that is erected every winter. Come here to people-watch and get a taste of Brussels' history and culture.
