Most visitors to Brussels Belgium will focus first on the small city center, where most of the top Brussels attractions can be found. The Grand Place, or Grote Markt, is a good place to begin your Brussels city center tours.
This central square has long been the heart of Brussels, and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Grand Place is part of the Lower Town area, with the Upper Town beginning just to the east of it.
In fact, if you are traveling this Christmas there, a huge Christmas tree is erected in the Grand Place. Also, be sure to check out the Christmas Market, where you can get some interesting goods and indulge in continental cuisine while you take it all in.
