An old castle buried
in the ground
Why locals love it
From the Middle Ages, a castle overlooked Brussels from the Coudenberg hill.
It used to be one of the most beautiful palaces of Europe, but nowadays as everything was flattened out, it is covered by stone and sand, but still accessible within the Museum!
Why you should visit it
Some 40 years later, the ruins of the palace were pulled down and the ground was flattened out for the construction of the new royal district and there are still some parts, such as alleys, rooms that are accessible underground! Definitely worth having a look at it if, like me, you like discovering "secret" and unknown places!
