The Royal Palace is one of the finest buildings in Brussels. It is the "working palace" of King Philip and you only can visit it during the summer months. Every year, three weeks in the spring, the doors open to the special plant collection of the Royal Greenhouses.
Next to the palace is the BELvue Museum, which is open all year. It provides an overview of the (Royal) history of Belgium, from the revolution in 1830 and the colonization of the Congo to the present day. This history is told colourfully through 1500 documents, movies, photos and historical objects.
Address: Place des Palais 7, 1000 Brussels
