If you happen to be in Brussels between late July and the end of August, you can tour the palace for free! The palace, as all royal palaces, is ornate to the point of being overdone, but it´s always amazing to see how royals live. The Belgian royal family does not actually live here, though. Still, it´s worth a visit. If you are really interested in palaces, you may want to buy a guide at the entrance, as there are no explanations or descriptions along the tour route. Outside the palace and across the street is Parc du Bruxelles, a beautiful park with fountains, sculptures, and trees and flowers.
