24 hours in Brussels

Famous due to its delicious chocolate & popular beers, the Belgium’s capital is much more than that! We’d like to share what we did in 24 hours. Hopefully you’ll have more days to explore the city but if you don’t, you need to know the best highlights.

During the morning, visit the top attractions in order to avoid the crowd, in this case, Manneken Pis, so you can get better shots. Take your time to contemplate the Grand Place. It’s an UNESCO world heritage site. Absolutely gorgeous!

Travel through the time walking at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.

Take the metro and get off at Heysel Station. You’ll find the whole Europe visiting only one place: the Mini Europe! It’s really worth going!

Need a break? In the same area you have lots options of restaurants.

Really close to there you see the Atomium, the icon of the World Fair of Brussels in 1958.
Take the metro again and get off at Merode Station to go to the Parc du Cinquantenaire. Lovely place!

It’s time to come back to the city centre. Pop over to Chocopolis and buy as much chocolate as you can! Pick a good Café and order a delicious hot chocolate, then head to Impasse De La Fidélité and introduce yourself to Jeanneke Pis, the female version of the Manneken Pis.

Don’t even think about leaving Brussels without drinking their famous beer. Our recommendation is Delirium Cafe.

Already hungry? Don’t worry, you’re very close to a lot of restaurants.
We hope you guys enjoy Brussels like we did!
