Top attractions in Brussels

The Belgian capital is one of Europe's lesser-known gems, yet it's fully worth a visit. In addition to some of the best waffles and chocolates worldwide, the city boasts an amazing array of things to see and do. Not convinced? Here's a sample of highlights.

MIM Brussels

The Musical Instruments Museum's incredible collection features over 8,000 musical instruments, allowing visitors to discover—and listen to—the evolution of music across centuries.

Fine Arts Museum Belgium

This world-famous museum is actually four museums in one, with a combined collection exceeding 20,000 pieces, including many of the most renowned works of Flemish art.

Centre for Fine Arts

Also known as the Bozar, this center offers treasures from across the fine arts—painting, architecture, music, and much more. Enthusiasts will probably return for several visits.

Brussels Town Hall

A marvellous specimen of Gothic architecture, the Brussels Town Hall is just one of the many magnificent buildings that line Brussels' spectacular central square, the Grande Place.

Mini-Europe

One of Brussels' most popular attractions for many years now, Mini-Europe features some 350 famous landmarks from across Europe, painstakingly reproduced in miniature scale.

Ancienne Belgique

A world-class concert hall, Ancienne Belgique is renowned for its perfect acoustics. It's been the venue of many historic gigs, including The Cure's infamous 1982 break-up concert.

Cinquantenaire

The Parc du Cinquantenaire is a gorgeous historic park east of the city center, ideal for a relaxing day out, featuring stunning architecture as well as the Royal Military Museum.

Manneken Pis

Legend has it, a young boy's bladder once saved Brussels from destruction. Today, the boy's statue stands atop a fountain, displaying his city-saving abilities to all the world.

Atomium

The 102-meter-tall structure is a reproduction of an iron crystal unit cell, made of gigantic steel beams and spheres. Climb into the spheres for gorgeous views of the entire city.

Planning Your Brussels Visit

Beer lovers rejoice

Belgium is justly famous for its beers. Brussels is ideal for discovering the country's rich brewing history, which spans several centuries—hit up any of the city's many beer halls and discover beer like you've never tasted it before.

French fries? Belgian fries!

As any Belgian will proudly tell you, they are the true inventors of the deep-fried potato. Try out the Belgian fries and decide for yourself whether the much-touted double-frying method is worth all the hype (best enjoyed together with a steaming bowl of clams, which restaurants customarily serve with a bottomless side of fries).

What People Are Saying About Brussels

The best choice! Specially when you have only one day and time matters

Organized and on time tour. The guide was speaking fluently all languages and gave enough information. The driver seemed experienced withe the bad weather. Ghent and Bruges need more than one days for sure. But if you have only one day and specially in winter time, when snow and rain are a true obstacle, this tour is what you really need.

A great way to learn about Belgian beer and taste different beers.

Met some great people to enjoy the beer tasting with. Bit "dusty" the next day after the tasting.

An amazing place to visit. The views are breathtaking!

while the line getting into the Antomium was long it moved smoothly and was not a hassle. Allow approx 2 hours to get into the building. The views were spectacular and worth the wait.

An awesome day visiting Ghent and Bruges. Flemish beef stew - OMG!

Daniel our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable about the area and local stories. The walking tour was soo interesting and made our country (Australia) seem so young in history compared to Ghent and Bruges. The Flemish beef stew is awesome and recommend you try it!
