Chapelle Royale/Koninklijke Kapel
(place du Musée 2).
   A small chapel built in the neoclassical style in the 1760s by Charles of Lorraine, the Chapelle royale was used as a stable by French troops in the 1790s. Following the emancipation of Protestants under Napoléon Bonaparte, the chapel was restored as a Protestant church (Chapelle Protestant) in 1804. King Leopold I and Charlotte Brontë worshiped here. It was restored to its original condition in 1987 and is used as a venue for performances in music, theater, and other arts.
