The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Grand Place and Musical Instruments Museum (MIM). Museum-lovers will appreciate Atomium and Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Brussels: Escargotiere de Warnant (in Anhee), Brasserie des Fagnes - Fabrication de Bieres Speciales (in Mariembourg) and Dinant (Parc de Furfooz & Eglise Collegiale Notre-Dame). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 26th (Fri) at Oceade. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Old Town of Durbuy, brush up on your military savvy at Fort Eben-Emael, stroll the grounds of St Symphorien Military Cemetery, and admire the masterpieces at René Magritte Museum.
