We are planning a day trip to Brussels from Paris in the last week of April with our 9 year old son. We plan to reach Brussels midi from Paris by the Thalys by 10 AM and then spend the day and depart around 6 pm back to Paris on the Thalys.
Could you please suggest just 2-3 places which we should not miss in Brussels. We are not too keen on museums. The idea is to get a feel of the city, eat a good meal in a roadside cafe, buy the famous Belgian chocolates and then head back to Paris.
Directions & suggestions on how to go about these are eagerly awaited. Many thanks...
