What's Ixelles, Brussels Like?
Many travelers start their tour of Ixelles with the opulent Grand'Place, which has been the center of the neighborhood since medieval times. The Grand'Place is decorated with many ornate gold statues that look especially dramatic at night. In fact, Brussels officials provide a laser light show accompanied by music every April through September. The Grand'Place is dominated by the Hotel de Ville, a magnificent former guild hall (it's now a government building) that dates to the 15th century. The Hotel de Ville's belfry is topped by an ornate statue of the Archangel Michael crushing the devil beneath his feet; in fact, the statue is so large that many locals use it for an easy navigation point through Brussels' winding streets.
