Visiting Brussels is like doing an intensive tour of Europe. The administrative headquarters of the European Union hosts the best of what the old continent has to offer, including history, good food and fraternal spirit. Ideal for children, it also houses Mini Europe, a theme park consisting of 350 models of the main monuments in 80 EU cities, made to a scale of 1/25 of the size of the originals.
If you are looking for something on a larger scale, head to the enormous Palace of Justice, built in 1883, or the Art Deco Sacred Heart Basilica, the fifth largest church in the world. If you’re looking for something on an even larger scale, the Atomium awaits you. The main pavilion for the 1958 World’s Fair of Brussels, the Atomium is 102 metres tall and represents an iron atom, now the symbol of the city.
Belgium is one of the world’s largest beer producers, so it is imperative that you sample a glass, along with a pot of mussels, the number-one dish of Belgium. The best place to do this is in the Grand’ Place medieval square, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
For museum enthusiasts, there are multiple options. If you enjoy paintings, don’t miss the Magritte museum, dedicated to the famous Belgian surrealist painter. Music lovers will feel right at home in the Museum of Musical Instruments, one of the most famous Art Nouveau buildings of Brussels, which houses 7,000 instruments from every era. Not to be missed is a trip to the Comic Strip Museum , which pays tribute to Belgium’s love of the world of comic books. One must not forget one of Belgium’s most illustrious celebrities, Hergé, who created the Adventures of Tintin. So, why not take one of our cheap flights to Brussels and have your own adventure!
