    This is the most beautiful plaza I have ever seen. I admired its beautiful architecture during the day and its amazing lights at night. There are several restaurants and shops on the alleys of each building. Grand place cannot be missed when visiting Brussels.

    Beautiful Church. I walked the long way around to reach the front and was concerned it may not be open based on all the weeds growing around the building. The interior is very nice. Near the shop, there is the story of "The Meridian of Brussels". A north/south line that runs through the church. An oculus in the stained glass window to the side of the altar helped to set the accurate time.

    Autoworld, is in a cavernous, historic building that houses an impressive, permanent collection of over 300 vintage classics, racing, luxury, concept and prototype automobiles, spanning over a century of automotive history. Many of them were new to me, being exclusively European marketed only.

    You don't have to be a diehard car lover to enjoy Autoworld and view its great vehicles on display. Many are rare and many new names will be unfamiliar, but the beauty, glamor and styles of all will impress anybody.

    Overall, AutoWorld offers a comprehensive and captivating journey through automotive history, showcasing a diverse collection of vehicles that will appeal to car enthusiasts and possibly even those who just like to ride in cars.

    This Parc is Beautiful! We stayed near the Grand Place and walked to the Parc during our visit - took about 40 min to walk there. It was worth it! The Monuments are huge and beautiful! Attached to a lovely Park - perfect to escape the city and enjoy some Green! Must visit if you’re in Brussels!

    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!

    We really enjoyed this museum. Lots of history and so many displays that show the evolution of music and instruments over time. Well worth a visit

    It is a must visit in Brussels, to see Rene Margritte's work which is so ahead of his times.

    He has such creativity and different from other artists. There is no details of his influence though.

    The museum is spacious, and really takes more than 2 hours to enjoy the art work

    Make sure you pre-book a tour of the interior of this building. Beautiful decor of the time period with French influence verify evident. Most tours are with an audio guide. There are also panaromic tours on certain days.

    Great place to visit. The illusions were entertaining. Thanks to Elias, one of the staff members. He was helpful and enthusiastic. He took plenty of pictures for us and showed us the best way to make the illusions work. 👍
    I would definitely recommend going!

    Beautiful stained glass windows! Lovely church and well maintained. Free to visit though there are places to donate to the poor and for the upkeep of the church. I had a nice peaceful visit.

    One of the famous landmarks of Brüssels, a small bronze statue, peeing into a fountain. I remembered seeing this guy as a kid - many years ago. Thought I'd pop by when in Brüssels for business. Somehow, he seemed tucked away this time, I passed him a few times without realising he was still stood in his corner, still peeing into that fountain. Partly, because a small crowd was blocking the view. Also, people do seem to enjoy taking selfies/photos where they stand so it looks like he is peeing on their heads. He is rather small, so you could miss out on him if you don't pay attention.

    Directiond: Go straight from Grand-Place de Bruxelles, following Rue Charles Buls straight for 4-5 minutes, until you hit Rue du Chêne 1-17 - and he's there on the corner, on your left side, walking from Grand Place.

    It is a great opportunity especially for young people to learn about the EU and the details from the beginning until today.

    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.
