The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Your day by day itinerary now includes René Magritte Museum. Atomium and Musical Instruments Museum (MIM) will appeal to museum buffs. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Grand Place and La Monnaie. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Antwerp (BbyB Chocolates Store Antwerp, Pierre Marcolini, &more). The adventure continues: browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, wander the streets of Place St. Gery, contemplate the waterfront views at Etangs d'Ixelles, and sample the tasty concoctions at Cantillon Brewery.
