  • This place is a must-go if you like to enjoy a good cup o tea, interesting conversations with the owners (who speak French, English, Polish and many other languages :)) and if you are into contemporary art. Every Saturday Happy Day opens its doors for anyone (for free!) to meet a new artist: painter, photographer, sculptor... You can enjoy an exhibition, while sipping delicious tea. Every artist is different, so you can get to know what's popular these days among amateur, as well as professional, artists in the heart of Europe. This place is hidden in the small cozy street which makes it even more authentic and special :)

    There are some really cool features like the glass floor with a train track under it. Going through the train cabins are really cool, too. Took me some time to figure out the flow of the place.

    Place du Chatelain is a nice area surrounded by a variety of shops and bars/restaurants for all tastes. Every wednesday a local market takes place in the main square starting at 2 pm with good products and prices. Absolutely worth visiting.

    Luxembourg Square marks the entrance to the European Parliament and its associated institutions. The small exhibition on the work of the EU and what it all does is free to visit and makes for a good introduction when visiting the rest of the complex and surrounding area.

    We visited Georges Henri Park on a gorgeous Sunday (few of those around these days in Brussels). At first, the idea that this small park of less than 10 acres had been laid out on the grounds of a disused churchyard seemed somewhat macabre. But once we got there, we could see there was nothing sinister about Georges Henri Park. It was a lovely and varied park with families having a pick-nick on the lawn, lads playing football, children enjoying themselves in the playground and people strolling or having a drink at the outdoor summer café. We liked the lay-out and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

    A few elements of the former churchyard have been maintained, like the two obelisks flanking the entrance gate on Square Meudon and some funerary monuments. Unclaimed tombstones have been used to pave the paths. In a separate corner stands the simple but moving Ravensbrück Monument, a memorial to female members of the resistance and their children who were murdered in Nazi camps during WW II by sculptor Thérèse Chotteau and architect Thierry Gonze.

    The above the ground cemeteries remind me of the cemeteries in New Orleans, LA. Very Old legendary graves

    Apart from looking up at the second floor of the house where Argentine writer Julio Cortázar was born on August 26, 1914 and reading the commemorative plaque next to the entrance there isn’t much to do here because the house is not open to the public. Cortázar only lived here for a very short time anyway because his family moved to Switzerland to flee the war. But just opposite the house, under the trees lining Avenue Lepoutre, there is a rather tormented-looking bust of Cortázar (1914 – 1984) by Argentinian sculptor Edmund Valladares on a high pedestal (2005), which is worth a glance.

    Avenue Lepoutre, off Place Brugmann, can easily be reached by taking tram 92 (Fort-Jaco) on Rue Royale or at Louise to ‘Darwin’. From there a short stroll along Rue Darwin takes you directly to Place Brugmann. Architecture lovers should not miss the opportunity to explore this pleasant residential area of Brussels boasting several listed buildings of various styles.

    Wonderful combined visit (under 2 euro) with the house of Eramus 200m away. Very helpful, friendly staff. a film (available in French and English at least) will be a bit long for most but was very interesting (and I stayed to the end) - about the role of the beguinage in allowing women an independent existence in safety, without the patriarchal discipline of the church but with a commitment to a life of meditation and helping others (the beguines were the first organised nurses). Some say it wasn't just because the men all died in crusades, it was a way for women to live independently, usefully and safely. Seeing the tiny rooms, I can imagine 8 lived here more comfortably than many poor people would have done. There is a little museum of local items and a few gems. Don't miss the sweetshop.

    This is one of Saint-Gilles little hidden gem. This art gallery is situated behind a beautiful Art Nouveau building in an Art deco white cube and has a great selection of art work with a new exhibition every month and a half or so. They are presenting all sorts of different art works from painting to sculpture and installation. I love this place and definitely recommend a visit to all the art lovers out there.

    I think this is a must see if you are in Brussels.
    View from the top is very nice, Brussels on a palm.
    The church is also beautiful. Museum wasn't working in November.
