Things to do in Brussels

What to see in Brussels

As the capital of Flanders, Belgium and Europe, Brussels has a rich history.

Start by exploring the Grand-Place, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once a swamp, today it is a beautiful cobbled market square with surrounding wooden houses. In August, a thematic flower carpet decorates the square with colourful begonias.

From there, visit the Town Hall to see Gothic architecture, the “Pissing Boy” statue and the city museum. The 100-year old Basilica of the Sacred Heart is an impressive church that also offers an excellent bird’s eye view of Brussels.

Don’t miss Mini-Europe as well, which is a short walk from Atomium, the famed steel sculpture.

What to eat in Brussels

One of the most iconic foods in Brussels is Moules Frites (mussels and fries), best-enjoyed al fresco. As Brussels is typically cold and rainy, stews are also popular. Carbonnade Flamande, a stew made with tender beef in a Belgian beer sauce, is a local favourite.

For those with a sweet tooth, indulge in a Dame Blanche (ice cream sundae), Belgian waffles or premium chocolate from Belgian’s famous chocolatiers.

Belgian beer is considered one of the world’s best and perhaps the most unique would be Kriek, a Belgian beer made with sour cherries.
