Brussels is a beautiful, visually appealing, architecturally-incredible city with lots of things to see and do. With it only being a short plane trip away, a weekend break to Belgium’s capital city is a must do.


While you can spend your visit wandering around the streets admiring the architecturally perfect city, there are so many other things you need to fit in.


  • Go see the Manneken-Pis – a major part of Brussels’ folklore you can find this statue on Rue de l’Etuve.
  • If you have cartoon-crazy kids you need to head to the Belgium Comic Strip Centre.
  • Visit Bruparck, a 25 hectare amusement park that houses a water park, a cinema and a planetarium.
  • Go shopping, particularly among the markets in Place du Grand.
  • Visit the Grand Place even when the markets aren’t there.
  • Get some chocolate. There is no way you can leave this fabulous city without picking up its famous treat.
  • Have a wander around the Royal Museum of the Army and Military History.
  • Don’t forget to visit the St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral – gorgeous gothic style buildings.
  • And finally, for a special royal day, check out the Palais de Justice in Upper Town.
