The Brussels Stock Exchange was established by Napoleon's order in 1801 and is located on the northwest side of the Grand Place in Brussels. On September 22, 2000, it merged with the Paris Stock Exchange, the Lisbon Stock Exchange and the Amsterdam Stock Exchange to establish the Euronext Brussels, which was renamed Euronext Brussels.
The Bourse of Brussels is the stock exchange of the country. While a handsome neoclassical building in itself, the Bourse marks the border between the old town center and the more modern district of the city with many chain clothing outlets and fast food restaurants along Boulevard Anspach.
a beautiful building, if you wait 2more years, you can visit inside..
Despite appearances, this IS the Brussels Stock Exchange. The Scottish Bagpiper just happened to wander out of the (excellent) Irish pub, O'Reilly's. Apparently, Rodin himself worked on some of the elaborate sculptures that adorn the building. The Grand Place is only 100 meters away.
