Food? Well, what better place than Brussels! Brussels becomes the seventh international travel destination and the seventh part of this travel series!

Brussels – June 2015

Age: 12 Years

Note: We toured Brussels in 1 day, so all these locations were chosen and visited based on the amount of time we had to visit each.

Point 1: Grote Markt

Grote Markt

Right in the heart of Brussels Old Town, the city’s main plaza is one of the best-preserved in Europe. Much of the square’s elegant character is due to the unique architecture of its elegant Gildehuizen (guild houses) with their magnificent gables, pilasters, and balustrades, ornately carved stonework, and rich gold decoration.

Point 2: Mannekin Pis

Mannekin Pis

Along the Rue de l’Etuve is Brussels’ best-known landmark, the Manneken Pis, usually besieged by a throng of tourists. Although he can be traced back to at least 1388, nothing much is known about the origin of the figure of a little boy urinating, popularly referred to as “the oldest citizen of Brussels.” Along the same streets, you can also find the female version of the Mannekin Pis, Jaenneke Pis between two local restaurants.

The streets by the statue have the best waffles and ice cream I have ever had in my life. The waffles were crisp and just the right taste and the ice cream was just the right sweetness and fluffiness. You can also find excellent authentic oriental food here and is a must-try!

Point 3: Sint-Michiels Kathedraal

Sint-Michiels Kathedraal

Dedicated to St. Michael and St. Gudula, this Gothic church was first founded in 1225 but only completed in the 15th century. The facade is impressive, rising majestically above a broad flight of steps and crowned with twin 69-meter-high towers designed by Jan van Ruysbroeck. Yet the best part of this church was the underground walk for a few dollars which allowed us into cold chambers and tombstones.

Point 4: Atomium Brussels

Atomium Brussels

Along with Manneken Pis, the Atomium is Brussels’ best-known landmark attraction, and although it’s a bit of a journey by tram to get out here, the bizarre 102-meter-high steel and aluminum structure, designed by the architect André Waterkeyn for the 1958 Brussels World Exhibition, is the city’s most surreal sight.

Point 5: Mini Europe

Mini Europe

Mini-Europe is a miniature park located in Bruparck, at the foot of the Atomium, in Brussels, Belgium. Mini-Europe has reproductions of monuments in the European Union on display, at a scale of 1:25. Roughly 80 cities and 350 buildings are represented.

A truly unique journey! Enjoy a stroll taking in the typical atmosphere of the most beautiful towns of the old Continent. The incomparable chimes of Big Ben welcome you to the heart of London. The gondolas and mandolins invite you to discover the charms of Venice. Follow the TGV high-speed train from Paris to the other end of France. You can make the models work yourself: the eruption of Vesuvius, the fall of the Berlin Wall, a bull-fight in Seville, the take off of the Ariane spaceship and many others. All in all, 350 models and sites with an unequalled level of craftsmanship.
