The Palace of Justice of Brussels is a courthouse located on Place Poelaert in Brussels. It is is not only a place for the administration of justice, it is also a historic building. It was designed by architect Joseph Poelaert and inaugurated in 1883. At the time, it was the largest building in Europe, even bigger than St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City. It has been a protected monument since 2001.

The doors of the Justice Palace are open to the public. Both national and international, can now rediscover the history and exceptional architecture of this mythical building. It is now possible for individual visitors to visit the Palace of Justice every Wednesday and Saturday with an experienced guide.
