Once upon a time, the Coudenberg Palace towered over the city of Brussels. Charles V and many other of the most powerful rulers ever to reign in Europe made this princely residence their home between the 12th and 18th centuries, until it was consumed by a terrible fire. Every trace of this prestigious palace simply disappeared underground for many years. Today, however, these ruins constitute a fascinating archaeological site incorporating a network of underground passages and chambers.
During a visit, explore the principal buildings of the palace and enjoy a stroll along the Rue Isabelle, which is now underground.
Immerse yourself in the prestigious history of Brussels and its palace!
