The rule of the Hofsburg dynasty in Europe is easily seen in the grandeur of the palace. Loved the “Sisi” exhibition. The jewel room an d armery are a must.

A very big and unique structure standing live example of olden historic solid rich construction. One can get down near the tram station and there are few sight seeing points there, one needs to follow the navigation sign board available on every street corner.

I was shocked at how amazing the Palace was. This wasn’t on the top 10 things to do list for many people. However, it was easily one of my top 3 things to do. The one room I have photos below of was mind blowing.

Worth visiting for the exterior alone at any time of day, this place provides some great photo opportunities and is right opposite one of the city's best parks.

If you are in Brussels this is one of the places to visit. See where the king lives. At certaint point of day you can see the exchange of the army.
