Brussels can be discovered on several thematic route. We can start our tour on the line of pubs and praline shops, but we can prefer the hidden coffee shops behind the antique facades and the best waffle localities too.
Of course the first thing to see in Brussels is the old square of the Grand Palace surrounded by the unique baroque buildings of the guilds. This is the scene of the famous Flower Festival in every second year of August. After darkening it is even fascinating thanks to the music and light effects, and probably you can take the best photo from the balcony of City Hall.
Originally designed and constructed for Brussels Expo in 1958, this 102-meter tall building has become the symbol of Brussels ever since. In the lower spheres, you can find various exhibitions or if you want to get amazed by the panorama, visit the top sphere with an elevator!
Even though the Palace no longer serves as the residency of the Royal family, the Throne room or the Hall of Mirrors are attractions which worth giving a try! Once finished inside, take a walk in Brussels Park, the biggest green oasis in the city.
Located near the European Parliament, the museum accommodates the biggest dinosaur skeletons of Europe. Children can take part in various activities, such as being an archeologist in a sandbox or going through the evolution, in the Gallery of Humankind.
Brussels has 4 metro lines (M1, M2, M5, and M6), which covers the entire Brussels-Capital Region. 3 other tram lines (T3, T4, and T7) are part of the premetro network, these lines are partially running in tunnels with longer distances between stations, establishing an intermediate service between metro and tram.
Families will appreciate Bruparck, not only because of its proximity to Atomium but the attractions inside, including a cinema, restaurants and the Mini-Europe, a miniature park. Though you can take a quick walk from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the Eiffel Tower in minutes, time simply flies in the park!
Most people know where Manneken Pis, this 61-centimeter tall "peeing" statue is located (for the ones who don't know, on the corner of Rue de l'Etuve and Rue du Chêne), but do you know where is his wardrobe? In the Royal House (Maison du Roi), just in front of City Hall, where you can find up to 1000 costumes worn by the statue, accompanied by other fragments from the history of Brussels.
