You might have planned for a trip to Paris or Rome, but have missed out on Belgium sightseeings because of your packed travel schedule. However, most of us may even plan for a stop over at Belgium, to check out the must see Brussels — capital city of Belgium — tourist attractions. But, if you are on a trip to Brussels, remember to check out the top sites in the city, as it is pretty difficult to explore the entire city in a short span of time. And, after you have already made a list of must see places in Brussels, then its time for extensive vagabonding and deep explorations to know the incredible history of Brussels or cherish nature. For the party-goers, there is always a chance for you to get into some of the most famed pubs, bars or dine out at top restaurants to savor authentic European delicacies or even Belgian dishes in particular. So, this vacation, if planning for an exciting European tour make sure you also included Belgium — especially Brussels – in your trip itinerary.
A walk along the city-scape will bring you across a number of architectures as well as museums. While all are not possible to be visited if the trip is short, but you can always chalk out plans after you are over with the major one’s. As for the must see Brussels sites start with the Grand Place — one of the major tourist places in the city. Infact, for a perspective tourist, the Grand Palace is almost inevitable, for its pulse and the galore of shops surrounding it. The narrow meandering pathways fringed with market places are best to be sauntered at evening, enjoy some window shopping or even dabble those spices in the plush restaurants and enjoy a heady nightlife at the bars/pubs. Excellent spot for the history freaks or the researchers, the square is best to enjoy the concerts, festivals and musicals as well. For some art works there are thousands, but the exquisite artistry of the Manneken Pis — also known as the Statue of the Pissing Boy — is a must see tourist attraction in Brussels, you shouldn’t miss, no matter what.
And if you are still game for some fun or exploration, two of the major sites still awaits you. Don’t miss a chance to visit Mini Europe bounteous with replicas of some of the best architectures of the world. It is worth a shot, and quite obviously anything that meets the eye seems to be original at the first look — until you are too meticulous about art. How come that Acropolis — the great Greek master architecture – is here at Mini Europe? Well, its just the replica you are looking at! Similarly there are various others you may bump on — and all are replicas. Big Ben, the great Eiffel Tower, and Brussels own, the Grand Palace, replicas of all find a space here – in this unbelievable must see place in Brussels. Best for the kids to come across myriads of architectures at one place, the site is an excellent opportunity for kids to know about history, art, culture and heritage of different countries in Europe.
More so, the Atonium is yet another must see Brussels site you may plan a trip as well, for a better fun-fulled travel experience. And, if you are looking at the imposing structure 335 feet high, standing stalwart amidst the other skyscrapers, you will sure get bewildered by the rare archi-mastery. Get in and you are exposed to multiple experiences from restaurants, bars to exhibition opportunities and many more. Reach up-top, and you can photograph the entire panorama of the Brussels city. Or, if wanting more of Brussels then myriads are still on store, left to be visited. The museums are the best places to watch out for, if you have a typecast inclination towards art, history or music.
