Brussels Royal Palace (Palais Royal de Bruxelles)

Dating back to the 18th century and fronted by the idyllic Parc de Bruxelles (Brussels Park), the Royal Palace of Brussels (or Palais Royal Bruxelles) might no longer be the official residence of Belgium’s royal family, but it remains one of the capital’s most magnificent landmarks and the site of various royal and state events. 

The Basics
Visitors can explore the lavish State Rooms, designed by Alphonse Balat for King Leopold II, and marvel at the grand marble staircase, glittering chandeliers, and opulent furnishings. Highlights include the Goya Room, with its striking Goya-inspired tapestries; the Mirror Room, with its mesmerizing jeweled ceiling; the Empire Room ballroom; and the dazzling Throne Room.

Most Brussels sightseeing tours include a stop to admire the grand palace facade, while independent visitors can explore at their own pace on a hop-on hop-off tour or enjoy a walking tour of the surrounding Parc de Bruxelles. Guided tours of the palace are also possible during the annual summer opening.

Things to Know Before You Go
Visits to the palace during the summer opening are free but only possible as part of an official guided tour.
The palace is fully wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The palace is located on Place de Palais at the south side of the Parc de Bruxelles (Brussels Park), about a mile (1.3 kilometers) southeast of downtown Brussels. Trams 92, 93, and 94 all pass the palace, while the nearest metro stations are Trone and Parc. 

When to Get There
It’s possible to admire the palace exteriors all year round, but the Royal Palace opens its doors to the public each summer, from the National Holiday on July 21 to September, when it’s open daily except Mondays.
