Discover all the things to do in Brussels
Brussels is home to the European Union with the European Parliament, Manneken Pis, Cinquantenaire Arch, Art Nouveau and Victor Horta, the Grand-Place and the Atomium. The city abounds in architectural monuments, from the Renaissance to modern times and discovering this heritage is full of surprises.
Visitors looking for a spot of culture might want to pay a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, The Royal Military Museum or the Museum of Musical Instruments. Or the Chocolate Museum and Beer Museum might be more to your taste. A Must-see attraction is Brussels' famed Atomium. Built for the World Fair in 1958, five of the Atomium's nine spheres are open to the public. They house both temporary and permanent exhibitions and the upper sphere is home to the Atomium's restaurant which boasts spectacular views of the city. At night, the nine spheres are lit up with almost 3000 lights.
Perhaps you would like to spend your morning relaxing at Sablon Garden, your afternoon shopping at Rue Neuve or perusing through luxurious gifts at Louise Square-Justice Palace and then spend your evening absorbing the atmosphere at the Royal Park Theatre.
