Palace of Justice (Palais de Justice)


This distinctive golden dome crowns the immense grey building of the "Palais de Justice" or Palace of Justice in Brussels.

This grand structure of Assyro-Babylonian style, housing the high courts of Brussels was the largest 19th century construction. At 160 by 150 meters, it is larger than St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and 3 times the size of the Royal Palace.

Finally completed in 1883, it was a 20 year project commissioned by Leopold II, one of the first Kings of Belgium. Today this 20,000 sqm building continues to stand at the top of Brussels, offering one of the best evening vistas of the city for residents and visitors.
