  • The place was beautiful but the fountain was full of trash (cans, bottles, food packaging, and cigarettes). Other than that the space was up-kept and it was a pleasant experience.
  • Very beautiful place with good landscapes over building and city hall. I think It’s a must go in Brussels since it is also near the plaza. Although there is no water in the fountain and some trash can be found, still a nice place to visit
