We visited at day time as well as in evening. I highly recommend that you visit late in the evening when it’s dark as that time these buildings look so beautifully lit and we could take some amazing pics

If first time in Brussels, go there, as simple as is. It is a town square typical for old Europian cities/capitals, GO THERE

The Grand Place is a must see for anyone traveling in Brussels. One of the most beautiful city blocks I have ever seen. Plenty of food options and sites to see around the square. I must see at night!

Take a bus tour, you then come across the main attractions. The parliamentary visit was also worthwhile.
