The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Grand Place and Atomium are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Rubens House (Rubenshuis) and Chateau de Bouillon. Get out of town with these interesting Brussels side-trips: Abbaye de Villers (in Villers-la-ville), Hallerbos – ‘'The Blue Forest’' (in Halle) and Memorial Waterloo 1815 (in Braine-l'Alleud). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Mardasson Memorial, take an in-depth tour of Museum Plantin-Moretus, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and deepen your knowledge of military history at Fort Breendonk.
