Create an itinerary including Royal Palace of Brussels
See where the King and Queen of Belgium receive visitors at Royal Palace of Brussels. While the royal family's residence is just outside of the city, this palace serves as an official place for business and the reception of foreign dignitaries. Located directly in the center of the city in Brussels Park, the palace houses some of the best-loved pieces of furniture and art from generations of the royal family, such as stately portraiture, porcelain, and modern art. You can view some of the reception rooms when they are not in use. If the king is not there, the flag is raised; if he is, the honor guard is stationed outside. Combine your tour with a visit to the BELvue museum, a good place to start your visit and learn more about Belgium's royal family. A restaurant and summer cafe are located next door.

  • Remarkable palace. Very impressive from the outside and I am extremely happy to have had the opportunity to visit the inside. It is easily accessible by public transport or on foot. Fascinating lighting in the evening.
  • Thanks for ur offer to visit Royal Palace of Brussels. I really enjoyed it was fantastic, full of great art and fun. I liked Royal family pictures and history of them. Staff were humble and nice but on the point of hospitality there was nothing for visitors. Thx
