Stroll across the Grand-Place
This is hands down one of the most beautiful squares in the world.

A monumental carpet of flowers is created in the square every other year, on 15 August, transforming it into a mass of colour.

The Manneken-Pis is a small fountain depicting a little boy urinating and is an integral part of Belgian folklore. The bronze statue can be found near the Grand-Place and has become one of the capital's emblematic monuments. Regularly dressed by hand-picked dressers, the statue even has its own society.
