The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Relax by the water at Sint-Annastrand and Sunset Beach. Attractions like Atomium and Magritte Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Brussels' surroundings by going to Arboretum Wespelaar (in Haacht), Antwerp (Te Boelaerpark & Saint Paul's Church) and Hallerbos – ‘'The Blue Forest’' (in Halle). The adventure continues: buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, contemplate the long history of Serres Royales De Laeken, see the interesting displays at Belgian Comic Strip Center, and admire the masterpieces at René Magritte Museum.
