The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Atomium and René Magritte Museum. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Manneken Pis, find something for the whole family at Mini-Europe, admire the striking features of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and make a trip to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.

For ratings and other tourist information, go to the Brussels trip itinerery planner.
