The easiest way to get to the Grand'Place in the center of Brussels is the train, as it is almost impossible to drive there and to find a parking space except in the official Parking buildings, but they are more expensive than a train ticket at least for me as a "Senior".
I had seen the scarecrow exposition (post below) and did a little walk around the Grand'Place before I returned home.
There is a new section of the Central station which leads you directly to the "Place Sablon" and the Grand Place.
It all had recently renovated
and enlarged. There are new shops and cafés. The extension is not so well known yet and therefore there weren't many people in this part of the station.
When I arrived at the Grand'Place it was packed with tourists !
and a wedding started at the City Hall. People living in Brussels itself the civil marriages are taking place in this beautiful building.
They are are allowed to wave from the Balcony as a Prince and Princess.
From the Grand Place I went to the Gallery Agora, which is just besides, I didn't need anything special, I just wanted to return
when this entrance draw my attention, I thought it was a new Nightclub, but no it was the entrance of the public restrooms ! Lots of people didn't dare to go inside, seeing two acquariums and such a nice decoration and asked where the toilets are, when I finally also noticed the sign WC above the door !
Coming out of the Gallery,
I arrived at the Agora Square where artcrafts, paintings, jewelry etc. is sold in these little red tents.
For the moment there are a lot of events in Brussels, I don't really know what they prepared here.
