The Grand Palace Brussels Town Hall

The Grand Palace is the fantastic place to start your Brussels journey. The central square in the city of Brussels, Grote Market is foliaged by mesmerizing Town Hall, guildhalls and other buildings featuring nice terraces to create a superb ambience. Each and every building you find in this square is outstanding and unique. Consider taking a guided tour of the place to enjoy an altogether different perspective of the place.

Everard't Serclaes: The must to consider

When you view the Manneke Pis, the town hall statue, you will also find the golden statue, which is believed to be man depicting the Savior, Jesus. There are others who also believe it to be woman showing Maria Magdalena. In fact, the statue depicts none other than Lord Everard't Serclaes, the nobleman who existed in the 14th century period. It has a lot of popular legends attached to it. The most famous one is that when you touch the wrist of the statue, it will bring about one full year of good luck in love.

The Famous Pub: Cafe le Cercueil

This pub is thought to be the weirdest of pubs which one can ever visit. You will find this pub in Haringstraat 12 towards the side of Grand Palace. The pub bizarrely appears to be unwelcoming from outside, but you get to see the darker aspect of Belgian humour here. The pub is dark when you walk inside. The existent tombs and the kind of decoration here will offer you morbid welcome.
