Please find below our Top 10 suggestions for your upcoming Brussels trip:
1. Grand Place
The Grand Place, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is really the main tourist destination in Brussels, though its roots have been much less glamorous. The area was only a swampy sandbar between two streams that gave Brussels its reputation, regarded as "broke sella." Recaptured and transformed into Niedermerckt, the sandbar sold French and English textiles, French wines and German beer. Timber-Stone houses and even villas of affluent families were constructed around the market in the Middle Ages, rendering the city a significant commercial administrative center. The town hall construction in 1402 turned the business into a political centre. The Grand Place is today a beautiful, wide-cobblestone square, and Brussels' major market.
2. Hôtel de Ville –Town Hall
Don't hesitate when touring the Grand-Place, the majestic Gothic Hôtel de Ville. It dates back to 1402 and is federal government place. It is an impressive building with arched openings, pillars and design ornamentation like St. Michael killing the demon. If you feel enthusiastic, ascend the Brabantine Gothic Structure's summit , which is 96 meters high, and enjoy the breathtaking city views.
3. Heysel Park and The Atomium
On your tour bus with Coach Charter Germany, you can ask your driver to stop at the popular Heysel Site. The park is devoted to entertainment and leisure and is situated in the west of Brussels.
Another of the park 's attractions is The Atomium. It is André Waterkeyn 's shiny 102-metre-high rendering of an atom built of chrome and steel. This was modeled at the 1958 World Fair to symbolize a modern 'atomic age,' and is an exact depiction of an iron molecule magnified 165 billion times.
Practically located next to the Atomium is Bruparck, a 25-hectare leisure park with various attractions and amusements. This includes a 27-year-old cinema complex named Kinepolis, an all-round Imax projector, a planetary and a water park named L'Oceade plus a number of eateries in 'The Area.' Pride of the town, however, goes to the show at 1/25th of the original scale of some of the most popular and iconic buildings in the EU countries. You'll see gondolas, a TGV train making the way to Paris
and you'll also hear the Big Ben of London's unmistakable chimes.
5. Royal Museums of Fine Arts
There are, actually, two museums into one here. The Napoleon-founded Museum of Ancient Art is especially well recognized for its exhibition of Flanders' great paintings. The other is The Modern Art Museum. This was built in 1984 and is comprised of eight levels, two of them underground. They offer fine art from over 600 years, including paintings, sculptures, and drawings. Take your time on a tour of this magnificent building. Your expert charter bus driver, while you enjoy the arts, will be waiting for you close by.
6. Manneken Pis
This cheeky, chubby Manneken-Pis statue-fountain is a leading character in the folklore of Brussels, and is recognized worldwide. Possibly the most filmed of Brussels' statues, albeit just 60 cm high. It was designed by Jerome Duquesnoy.
7. City Museum – Maison du Roi
The French name of Maison du Roi is translated as 'The Kings House,' but while the house is a richly ornate masterpiece, no king has ever lived here. This museum is dedicated to the history of Brussels, and if you have already seen the Manneken-Pis, you can take a look at his costumes here. Brussels' rich history is told on three floors from the Middle Ages to present day.
8. The Royal Palace
One of the symbols in Brussels city is the Royal Palace. The palace is the Royal Family's original home. The Belgian flag from the roof indicates the Sovereign's arrival and the ritual of the Changing of Guard takes place every day at 14.30 p.m.
The palace is surrounded by a series of neoclassical architectural structures. The house of the academies, the headquarters of the Royal Academy and the house of fine art are two of the best examples.
9. Coudenberg Palace Archaeological Site
One of Brussels' most interesting things to do is to visit this active archaeological site that was rediscovered in the 1980s. The Coudenberg Palace was excavated to uncover the old Brussels Palace cellars and tunnels, as well as the abandoned streets hidden underneath the city for decades. Visitors can navigate through the excavations site directed by free audio guidance.
10. Basilique Nationale du Sacré Coeur
Brussels' Koekelberg district is dominated by the impressive Basilique Nationale du Sacré Coeur. This basilica is the fifth largest church in the world and brainchild of Leopold II. Construction started in 1905 to mark the country's 75th anniversary. The massive church was completed after more than six decades in 1970.
