The Palace of Charles of Lorraine (French: Palais de Charles de Lorraine, Dutch: Paleis van Karel van Lotharingen) is a neoclassical palace in Brussels, Belgium. It served as the residence of Charles Alexander of Lorraine, Governor-General of the Austrian Netherlands from 1744 to 1780, and currently houses a museum.
The construction was started in 1757 on the place where the palace of Nassau had stood, and of which only the Nassau Chapel was preserved. The palace counts five halls of which the interior is reminiscent of the Austrian Netherlands and the Bishopric of Liège in the 18th century.
