Getting down to some official tourism...here's the Royal Palace (le Palais Royal). If the flag (le drapeau) is flying, the king is in the country. Looks like we're in luck : he's here ! Voici the cultural 'headquarters' of the Communauté Française de Belgique : Le Botanique (well, at least its rotunda and some greenery). On the left, a view of l'Eglise Sainte Marie.
On the right, a much-too-small-to-impress picture of the Cathédrale des Saints Michel et Gudule.
Last but not least...Brussels / Bruxelles / Brussel would not be the same without its beautiful Grand Place / Grote Markt.
First is a shot of one corner of the G.P., dominated by l'Hôtel de Ville, and for any néerlandophones, het Stadhuis.
And finally, here's the Maison du Roy / Koninghuis, not that it is where the king lives, nor where any king has ever lived...hey, but that's Brussels for ya ! It can (more appropriately perhaps) be referred to as le Musée de la ville de Bruxelles. This is where the Manneken Pis gets dressed ;-)
