The Maison du Roi (King’s House) or Broodhuis (Breadhouse) on the Grand Place/Grote Markt in Brussels houses the Brussels City Museum. The Grand Place (or Grand Square) is the central square of Brussels; it is bounded by opulent guildhalls and two major edifices, the city’s Town Hall and the King’s House or Breadhouse building. Measuring 68 by 110 m (223 by 361 ft), the Grand Place is the most important tourist destination and most memorable landmark in Brussels. Considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998.
