By architect Joseph Poelaert this monster of a building serves as a warning to the 'criminals' in what was the city at the time of its construction. You can the best view over the city on the square just in front of the Palais de Justice. On a weekday during the day, you can access the building after a security check and explore the inside. The main hall is really impressive just for its sheer size and hushed atmosphere. Lawyers are consulting with their clients at the tables all round, be careful not to disturb.
