Brussels has many sights for tourists. For me the most impressive was the Grand Place.
The town hall, with its 300-foot-tall tower is probably the most impressive on the Grand Place, though, depending on your tastes a turn in any direction might put you face-to-face with a building you like better.
Not far from the Grand Place is the symbol of Brussels’ love of the good life and the irreverence with which they approach the world, Mannekin-Pis.
The statue is tiny and, to my mind, kind of odd as a symbol of your city but the crowds that come to see the little boy are pretty entertaining to watch.
I enjoyed wandering through the Galeries Royal St. Hubert, the oldest, still-operating shopping mall in Europe.
There are many beautiful churches in Brussels too. I believe my favorite is Notre-Dame du Sablon Church, with lovely stained glass windows.
I had limited museum time, so I used it in the Museum of Musical instruments. Partly because I like music and partly because the building was so beautiful.
And, of course, no visit to Belgium would be complete without:
