The whimsical, weird, and wonderful city of Brussels is like no other. With its medieval architecture, and prize place as the centre of the European Union, Brussels is a hub of mix-matched cultures, languages, and visitors. The combination of French and Flemish (a dialect of Dutch) sets the scene for the home of the best beer, fries, chocolate, waffles, and mussels in the world.
With few large landmarks in Brussels, the city is best seen by experiencing the great food, culture and surreal nature that it has become famous for. The Grand Place is the main square in the heart of Brussels, with picture-perfect medieval architecture holding modern day cafe’s and restaurants. Nearby, you can visit the Mannequin Pis — Brussels’ iconic statue of a young boy urinating. As strange as it sounds, tourists from all over come to take a photo in front of this small and strange statue. Delirium cafe is commonly known as ‘the best bar in the world,’ with three floors of madness and over 2000 kinds of unbeatable beer. A must see stop in Brussels! The Cinquantenaire is a large arch and park that symbolises Brussels, and with a museum attached to the arch, its the perfect visit no matter the weather. While walking around these landmarks, stop and try a waffle or fries! Vendors are all over Brussels, and you won’t regret tasting their culinary feat.
Brussels is full of charm, but is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to iconic Belgian cities. Antwerp, a port city, is in Flanders — the northern and Flemish speaking area of Belgium. Antwerp is the fashion capital of Belgium, with fashion schools and shopping all over. Antwerp is accessible an hour away from Brussels by train, and its shopping area the Meir is the most popular stop. Take another day trip to live out your ‘In Bruges’ dreams. Visit the scene that inspired the famous film. Bruges architecture recalls its medieval past, and is about an hour away from Brussels on the train. See the cobbled streets, canals, and churches. Outside of Belgium, Amsterdam in The Netherlands is two hours away on the train. See Dutch art at the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, while you take in Amsterdam’s bustling bike culture and canals. Not to be missed!
