Incredible culture

Belgium’s capital is bursting with culture, whether museums, architecture or independent galleries are your thing.

The Grand Place was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998 and consists of 40 intricately designed buildings. You’ll find the city hall in this central square, surrounded by antique and ornate guildhalls.

Mont des Arts – translating into mountain of arts – is a perfectly manicured square that includes world-class museums such as the Magritte Museum. For cutting-edge art, try the Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art (MIMA), which features profiles on graffiti and innovative digital art.

If you’re eager to explore more of Belgium’s colourful heritage, visit the Belgian Comic Strip Center. Housed in a fantastic Art Nouveau building, browse vivid exhibits on the Smurfs, Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock and the gang.

Drop by the Hergé Museum to see original Tintin artwork and learn about the fascinating life of his creator.

Weird and wonderful attractions

Quirky attractions can be found across Brussels – including the iconic Manneken Pis. The original version of this unusual statue can be found in the Brussels City Museum, but a replica sits near the Bourse metro station.

For a chance to see all of Europe’s top landmarks in one afternoon, visit Mini Europe – a model park featuring the Eiffel Tower, Houses of Parliament and Berlin Wall.

The Atomium is a huge structure depicting a magnified iron crystal. Originally constructed as part of the 1958 World Expo, it now serves as a museum and unique photo opportunity for visitors.
