King's House

Situated on the site of the old bread market, this house, originally called the House of the Duke, used to house the tax and tribunal services. It was entirely rebuilt in 1515 and renovated in the 19C, nonetheless preserving its late 16C Gothic style. Today, it houses the Brussels City Museum that includes works of art and collections retracing the history of the city, and especially its art.
