The Grand Place to Be

So why not check out “The Grand Place to Be” from the comfort of your own home? Immerse yourself in this virtual tour to learn more about the history of the Grand-Place in Brussels, its heritage and daily life in winter and summer alike.

Thanks to the magic of technology, the five metre high original statue of Saint Michael will be your host and guide you through rare and exclusive displays. Paintings, artefacts, engravings and photographs illustrate the eventful history, various functions, uses and transformations of the square from the 12th century right through to the present day.

You can also take a look at its restoration projects. This is your chance to take a behind-the-scenes look at the most beautiful square in the world. There is plenty to learn and, more importantly, lots of fun to be had!
