5 minutes max here depending on how many selfies you plan on taking. Worth the walk if you're near Lombard street or the Grot markt; it's kind of like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel tower... but not really. Great for a cute pic. Many chocolate shops here as well; I recommend Planete Chocolat which is back on the... More

This wasn't on my itinerary list for Brussels, but we ended up passing by when looking for a pub we were after one evening and I still don't get what the fuss is about with this. It's iconic for Brussels I know and therefore "a must see" for some people, but I don't think you're missing out if not. The... More

I had never heard of the Manneken Pis until a friend suggested it as something to check out in Brussels. The whole landmark was much smaller than I thought it would be and the sculpture was even tinier but it looked kind of cute as it was dressed in costume (as a scholar?). There were heaps of people crowded around... More

A favorite for tourists, this little man was dressed as a pirate when I saw him last. No idea why, but humorous nonetheless.

This baby is tucked in a small street which is not easy to find; since he is so famous, got to take a photo with him. After taking a photo, do walk around the area and the Grand Place. Have a piece of Belgium waffles, keep smiling.

Of all the hundreds of thousands of notable sights in Europe, this has to be one of the most underwhelming. It's tiny, not very artistically appealing, gated off, and so crowded that you can't even get close enough to pose in front of it for a picture without a thousand people shoving their way in your photo. Thankfully though it... More

It's a a shape that this is the iconic image of Brussels. Tiny statue causing a blocked street with tourists. Only worth going to try the amazing escargot being served across the street from the fountain. So so good. If you are of the pee-statue fascination, be sure to check out the Pissing Girl statue in the courtyard of the... More

My wife and I came to Brussels about ten years ago. I saw the pisser then. I am on another of my many Eurail adventures in Europe and decided that I should pop into Brussels. And even though is was lightly drizzling, somehow or other, the pisser made my list of highlights that I needed to cover. Don't ask me... More
