    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

    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.

    Not just a model village but an an education too. You can easily spend 2 hours wandering around the exhibit as easy model has little extra details and interactive elements.

    Only slight disappointment was the restaurant would probably have given that a miss in hindsight.

    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.

    We visited as a group of 5, 4 of whom have no interest in cars whatsoever. This was surprisingly a really fun afternoon activity. The whole place was laid out really well (could maybe do with some guidance for which direction to start but I don't think it really matters), there was clear and interesting information relating to all of the cars on display. Most of these were in 3 languages (I think French, Dutch and English) but ones we came across without English had a qr code to scan to access the written info. The entire place was spotlessly clean including the toilets. The James Bond temporary exhibition was really well done too and showed scenes from the movie that included the vehicles on display. One thing to note would be the gift shop which I imagine would be the highlight of many childrens visits - it is definitely more of a shop for car enthusiasts and not somewhere to pick up a £5 matchbox car. Overall, would definitely recommend!

    This is a spectacular museum! The interior architecture and layout is stunning. The dinosaur exhibit is even MORE stunning! It was quiet when we visited and we couldn't believe the quality and quantity of large dinosaur exhibits. It's totally worth it to bring the whole family and spend a couple of hours discovering each room. Recommend!

    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.

    On a wet day in Brussels we came across train world.

    The staff on site were very knowledgable and welcoming.

    The entrance is right by the train station.

    There are so many exhibits to see and you have the option to use a digital guide, which is very informative.

    Towards the end of the museum, there is even a train simulator, where you can drive a train!

    Really worth the visit and I would highly recommend.

    The museum is very big. You could spend more than a day here if you wanted to read everything displayed. We didn't. We enjoyed seeing the aircrafts and tanks. Actually, we saw 2 of the tanks started and driven as they looked like they had to move them around to reposition them. It was awesome to see. The view from the lookout at the top was amazing.

    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?

    There is a beautiful view from these gardens, nonetheless the view is a sight within itself. It is modest - nothing worth trekking your way for. Only takes two or three minutes to walk around the whole thing. One can merely pass it by, but I would stop to get a good photo and enjoy the statues.
