The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Get some cultural insight at Atomium and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). Family-friendly places like MIM - Musical Instruments Museum and Mini-Europe will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Memorial 1815 (in Braine-l'Alleud) and Citadelle (Citadel) (in Namur). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Grand Place, steep yourself in history at Serres Royales De Laeken, explore the world behind art at René Magritte Museum, and see the interesting displays at Belgian Comic Strip Center.
