Turning east from the Royal Square, you saw the Royal Palace of Brussels. Said to be the royal palace, the royal family members do not live here, just a place where some ceremonies and foreign affairs reception are held. The palace was built in the 18th century, and the former Köttenborg Palace was destroyed by a fire in 1731. The Cordenberg Palace was built in the Middle Ages. In 1556, the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V held the abdication ceremony here. At that time, he was accompanied by his beloved William of Orange and the future father of the Netherlands William I. It is said that Charles V was crowned in the Basilica of San Petronio in Bologna.
We couldn't get into the palace, but the view from outside and the pictures look amazing. Highly recommend a visit to this place.
