Iconic landmark reopens to visitors

The Palais de Justice in Brussels has reopened to visitors. It is one of the most photographed places in Brussels, along with the adjacent Place Poelaert, offering magnificent views over the city.
The federal government, the government of Brussels and the Court of Cassation have joined forces to enable visitors to discover one of the capital’s most famous and mysterious buildings.
Visiting the Brussels Law Courts was previously only possible for a limited number of groups of 20 people who signed up together. Over the past two years, these visits were suspended due to the Pandemic.
“Palais de Justice is part of our collective heritage, although not many people have visited its interior. In addition to protecting and renovating our heritage, opening iconic buildings is a cornerstone of heritage policy,” said a Visit Brussels spokesperson.
