The Grote Markt or Grand-Place of Bruxelles is the representative square of the capital city showing all the wealth. Most important building is the Gothic-style town hall building (Stadhuis), but also the neo-Gothic Broodhuis and the different guildhalls in Baroque style contribute to the atmosphere of the square. Today this ensemble of buildings is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (declared 1998).
The Grote Markt is a pedestrian zone, and the rectangular square is a place where you can see many tourists and guides. It is a good starting point to explore the city and the many bars and restaurants in the city center surrounding it.
