The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Kids will enjoy Grand Place and Atomium.

There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Mini-Europe, don't miss a visit to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, get engrossed in the history at Museum of the City of Brussels (Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles), and appreciate the history behind Manneken Pis.
