Royal Palace's visit Brussels
From 22/07/2014 to 07/09/2014
The Royal Palace is one of the most beautiful monuments of Brussels and is located at the end of Royal Park (also called Brussels Park).
Started in 1820 under the orders of King Guillaume, it was transformed in 1904 by the architect Alphonse Balat. Today, the Royal Palace has numerous reception rooms and houses the office of the Belgian King, where he fulfils his official activities.
Every year during the summer, it welcomes tourists for free to enable them to visit the site. In 2014, two exhibitions are offered: an exhibition on the life of the royal couple and the "Brilliant Belgian spirits" exhibition. The latter tells the course of several Belgian scientists and the role of King Albert 1st in the scientific research.
In addition to this tour, every Sunday afternoon, the royal crypt will also be open to the public. It is located in Notre Dame de Laeken and houses the tombs of the Belgian sovereigns.
