Things to do and places of interest in Brussels

Brussels is a multicultural city known for its museums, marketplaces, culinary delights and ornate squares set between medieval streets.

  • You may want to start your Belgian visit at the Grand Place, one of the most beautiful squares in Europe with Gothic and Baroque style buildings, street performances, flower shows, light shows (in summer) and a lively vibrant atmosphere.
  • Check out the St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral and the famous Mannekin Pis, a bronze statue of a nude child taking a tinkle! Brusselians dress him up to celebrate several events and festivities of countries around the world.
  • If you are going to do the Museum circuit, a visit to the Musical Instruments Museum, Horta Museum, Royal Museum of the Army and Military History, Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium, Museum of Natural Sciences, Belgian Centre for Comic Strip Art and Museum of Belgian Brewers, will be some of the more interesting options.
  • A must-see in Brussels is the molecule-shaped stainless steel structure of the Atomium which offers a walk through its tubes and spheres, and a 360-degree view over Brussels city.
  • Visit the Mini-Europe theme park featuring miniature scale models of all the key landmarks of Europe, including the Big Ben, Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur, Mount Vesuvius, the Berlin Wall, and many more.

Tips and tricks for visiting Brussels

Purchase a Brussels Card which allows you access to 32 museums and attractive discounts to the guided tours, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. A 24-hour, 48-hour or 72-hour access will cost €22.00 EUR, €30.00 EUR and €38.00 EUR respectively. Instead of spending on food at the famous Grand Place, take a walk to the nearby Boulevard Anspach and enjoy better food for less. Or you could indulge in the waffles and frites (French fries) from stalls that are spread out on practically every street in Brussels. Belgium is known for its chocolate and beer, so you should definitely consider a visit to the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate and also join a Belgium Beer Tour to experience a good number of Belgian brews. Delirium Café near Grand Place has more than 3000 beers to choose from, so you will be spoilt for choice!
