Law Courts of Brussels Hotels


Justice is blind. Lucky for you, you’re not. Otherwise you would miss out on seeing one of Europe’s most magnificent buildings; the Palace of Justice in Brussels, Belgium. Known locally as either the Justitiepaleis van Brussel or the Palais de justice de Bruxelles, the Palace has to be seen to be believed. Thought to be the largest 19th Century structure built in the world, the Palace of Justice is bigger than Rome’s St. Peter’s Basilica.

Justice is blind. Lucky for you, you’re not. Otherwise you would miss out on seeing one of Europe’s most magnificent buildings; the Palace of Justice in Brussels, Belgium. Known locally as either the Justitiepaleis van Brussel or the Palais de justice de Bruxelles, the Palace has to be seen to be believed. Thought to be the largest 19th Century structure built in the world, the Palace of Justice is bigger than Rome’s St. Peter’s Basilica. The building is 105 meters high and covers 24,000 square meters. Its location at the top of a hill only adds to the building’s impressiveness. But it’s not just any hill. The Palace of Justice is built atop Gallows Hill, sight of many a Medieval execution. If you’re looking for the right hotel near the Palace of Justice, our Eurobookings.com website lists many of them, describing each in detail.

Entering the Palace of Justice, you might find your gaze being pulled up by the many massive columns leading to the ceiling that is somewhere far above. And you will not soon forget the Palace’s grand staircase. Built between 1866 and 1883, the Palace of Justice was the masterpiece of architect Joseph Poelaert at a cost of 45 million Belgian francs, a staggering amount for the time. To make room for the immense structure, much of the surrounding Marollen District was leveled and its inhabitants forced to leave. As a result, the word architect was for years used locally as an insult.

Some statistics: The 104 meter high dome weighs 24,000 tons. The eight courtyards have a surface area of 6,000 square meters. There are 27 large court rooms and 245 smaller ones (yes, it still serves as Belgium’s Supreme Court). Because it is built on a hill, one end of the building is 20 meters higher than the other end, resulting in entrances being located on different floors. The Palace of Justice has influenced other buildings around the world, including Peru, whose Supreme Court closely resembles it. Hitler and his architect Albert Speer based several of their monumental buildings on it as well. And if you want to see it up close and personal, Eurobookings.com is here to help you choose between all the great hotels near the Palace of Justice in Brussels.
