The Place Royale (French, 'Royal Square') or Koningsplein (Dutch, 'King's Square') is a historic neoclassical square in the Royal Quarter of Brussels, Belgium. Modelled after the so-called French royal square and built between 1775 and 1782, according to a plan of the architects Jean-Benoît-Vincent Barré and Gilles-Barnabé Guimard, to replace the former Palace of Coudenberg, it was part of an urban project including Brussels Park.
The Place Royale is one of oldest architecturally consistent and monumental public squares, as well as an excellent example of 18th-century urban architecture. Rectangular and symmetrical in shape, it measures 77 by 113 metres (253 by 371 ft), and is entirely paved. In its centre stands equestrian statue of Godfrey of Bouillon. It is also flanked by the Church of St. James on Coudenberg, as well as some of the main museums in the city.

Beautiful square. You can visit the royal palace but make sure to check the public opening hours. The entrance is usually free. There are several museums to visit. Also the magritte museum, he was a famous surrealist from Belgium. Trial paper is worth seeing. The church is boring. The square is best if you go to the old England building on top you will find a roof restaurant and Terrasse.

this place is big and looks like a a city hall. it's crowded. full of tourists. but it is very beautiful place to stay for a few minutes. you can take a picture of its statue. it looks good. there are a lot of food stalls around. one thing you must buy in Brussels is their 1 euro waffles. it's delicious!

An old look dating back to the 18th century and a beautiful statue. A very stylish courtyard with trees designing in a box. A good weather after the rain I remembered in northern Iran. Maybe another day ...

Very beautiful place to have a good time with family or better to saying, with everyone with very kind people that respond very kindly and very happy, in one phrase I can say that if you go there you can be happy :) and also there are a lot of machines that give you delicious Ice Cream, Drinks, Hamburgers, and everything that you want is there... and in the end you can see almost all of the beautiful Bruxelles City from top with amazing flowers :)

Lovely location. Everything in walking distance. Lots of cafes and restaurants. Not a huge selection of bars though.
