    Worth the stop. We met here with a tour group and spend nearly 45 minutes learning the rich history, the good and the very bad. The buildings were all built mostly in the late 1600's, many being destroyed and rebuilt during wars. It tends to be very crowded with tourist groups.

    I had an amazing time trying to figure out each puzzle to be honest I had too much fun as I still have my childish spirit although the queue was a bit annoying but was worth it 👌

    The Grand Place square, 110 m long and 68 m wide, is surrounded by 29 buildings of the Houses of various craft and trade guilds, built at the end of the 17th century. The citizens smile that thanks to King Louis 14, on whose orders almost the entire city was destroyed, the new version of the square has become even more beautiful. Built in the Flemish Baroque style, the guild buildings are richly decorated with statues and sculptures, ornaments and reliefs. For me, the most interesting buildings are located on the right, when looking from the Town Hall. There are 6 guild houses on this side of the square, the names of which you can learn on your own or from your guide😎.

    Fascinated by the garden and Art-Deco interior. It was a really good experience for me discovering sculptures in the garden and entering the maze modelled on the mythological Daedalus.

    Similarly, each room inside the house has been beautifully decorated with warm colours and fine art; it was a pleasure to discover more about the significance of David and Alice van Buuren in Uccle, Brussels.

    Great building to look at on the Grand Place. We also did the tour inside which we pre-booked which was a good idea as was full on the day. If you pre book go inside the building entrance in the courtyard as it starts inside. The tour was about an hour long, was informative and with humour. Would recommend.

    Wonderful environment just outside the skirts of Brussels. Hiking routes free available in the internet. Nice points to refuel the inner person.

    We didn't know much about the Atomium prior to our visit and were pleasantly surprised.

    This one came for us from an online top 10 of things to do in Brussels and made for a great day out. The Atomium itself is a relatively short experience however the surrounding area and parks make for added interest & exploration.

    The assent, and subsequent decent, were quite the undertaking with a 4yo, but worth it for the spectacular views at the summit.

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

    The area is very nice both for the nature and for the Abbey. Some areas can be crowded in the weekends especially on June and July

    Beautiful cathedral with some interesting architecture and art/sculpture to look at inside. Worth a visit while in Brussels as is close to the centre.

    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.

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