Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Bring the kids along to Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule). Escape the urban bustle at Hallerbos – ‘'The Blue Forest’' and Te Boelaerpark. Step out of Brussels to go to Antwerp and see Cathedral of Our Lady, which is approximately 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Atomium, explore the world behind art at René Magritte Museum, step into the grandiose world of Royal Palace of Brussels, and buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.
