Brussels Royal Palace
Place des Palais
- MAPS: Google Maps
Until 1731, this was the site of the former Duke's Palace. After it burnt down, architect Louis Montoyer built two family residences. Using these residences as the basis, William of Orange then set to work on a royal palace, which he saw as essential now that The Hague and Brussels were sharing the role of capital. Work was completed in 1829 only to start again in 1862 under the Duke of Brabant, or future King Leopold II. The building was extended and the interior decorations altered by the architect Balat.
