Brussels, the heart of Europe:

Brussels is a welcoming and a cosmopolitan city. With its European Union and NATO headquarters, this metropolis is often referred to as The Capital of Europe. 

Brussels offers more than governmental buildings, it is the ultimate European city with a mosaic of languages and cultures paving a way for a vibrant restaurant and nightlife scene. With over 80 museums, the King’s Palace and a wealth of history, culture is equally accessible. 

Tourist Attractions in Brussels:

►Grand Place: Right in the heart of Brussels Old Town, the city’s main square is one of the best preserved in Europe. The most recognisable building on the square is the Hôtel de Ville, built in 1402.

►Manneken Pis: Brussels’ best-known landmark is the 61 cm small bronze sculpture, depicting a naked little boy urinating into a fountain’s basin.  

►Palais Royal: The Royal Palace (Palais Royal) used by the Belgian royal family as an official residence is a must see. Surrounding the Palace are an ensemble of cultural buildings boasting neoclassical facades, including the Palais des Académies, home of the Royal Academy of Sciences and the Palais des Beaux-Arts on the west side of the square, designed and built in the 1920s by Victor Horta.

►Magritte Museum: The Magritte Museum presents an outstanding collection of works by the Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte. This rich collection contains over 200 works.

►Musical Instruments Museum: The MIM has its quarters in a magnificent Art Nouveau building erected in 1899 and designed by architect Paul Saintenoy. The MIM exhibits some 900 instruments in a high-quality showcase that will delight all visitors.

►Belgian Comic Strip Center: This gorgeous 1906 building, also designed by Victor Horta, is home to the wonderful Comic Strip Center, devoted to the history of cartoons and comic strips in the country that gave the world The Smurfs and Tintin.

►Atomium: Along with Manneken Pis, the Atomium is Brussels’ best-known landmark, and although it is a bit of a journey by tram to get out here, the bizarre 102 meter-high steel and aluminium structure, designed by the architect André  Waterkeyn for the 1958 Brussels World Exhibition, is the city’s most surreal sight.
