    A must visit when in Brussels. No matter how hard we tried, our clicks just couldn’t capture the beauty and vibe. Nice to see the buildings of the different guilds. All the famous chocolatiers outlets are present here. We tried selections from Mary, Neuhaus, Leonidas and Godiva

    In my opinion, this is the most beautiful structure in Brussels. Lots of other visitors agree so this indoor shopping arcade is usually very crowded. We bought chocolates here. Lots of upscale shops and some places for coffee. The design is classic mid-nineteenth century.

    Some odd reviews here where I can only assume visitors didn't make the most of their trip. The surrounding area is a little uninspiring but the Atomium itself is impressive from the outside. €15 felt slightly steep initially but once inside it's probably right. At the top there is a bar and restaurant with some great views then on the way back down there are some light shows and history on the structure. We were there almost two hours, worth the tram ride out.

    This is the biggest church in the old center of town. It is set on a hillside and in a pretty park and towers above the old town. Some magnificent art inside.

    One of the grandest buildings on the Grand Place, you will want to linger and adore its architectural might. Take some photos, although that might be hard to do as there are so many tourists around. We were here on a weekend so were unable to get inside.

    Lots of events go on in the Parc all year round. My only note would be I’d love a notice board where it showed what was in the pipe line.
    The ground staff are always helpful and willing to chat about floral displays etc.

    Worthwhile pushing the door to visit and see the beautiful colourful windows. The bells are also delightful.

    The parliamentarium is an interesting place. It showcases the evolvement of the EU and the agenda that it stands for.

    After visiting this place, I can’t help but to think that the EU is probably under the control of the USA.

    These buildings are truly beautiful. You will find them throughout the the old lower town but especially on the Grand Place. They are very decorative and from another era. I took a lot of photos. Lots of tourists around.

    You will find crowds of tourists here snapping photos of this very small fountain sculpture. It is one of the iconic images of the city, a bit cheeky to be sure. But I did not find it interesting or attractive. And the crowds are rough.

    A beautiful place, located near the Place Royal and Park de Brussels. If you like beautiful plants, a park where you can just walk in good weather, admire the roses and landscape - this is the place for you. Perhaps visiting this park should not be your goal in Brussels, but if you find yourself somewhere nearby, why not stop by?

    Overwhelming! We managed to get tickets for the very short opening period which is normally from mid April to the frist week of May.

    These are big significant buildings in the business and government area of the city. They look great and grand, impressive from the outside.

    This is a small square at Brussels' bohemian Sablon area. Place du Grand Sablon is adorned with some neat, well-maintained houses. Great place to take a rest while exploring the Belgian capital.

    The first sight of the National Basilica must be impressive for most visitors. It is one of the largest churches in the world and can be seen from the end of Parc Elisabeth. Given its sheer size, the basilica has a surprisingly simple, almost austere interior. It is out of tourist area and thus remains serene and peaceful. Metro line 6 connects it with downtown Brussels.
