Slide of :
- The Arcade Du Cinquantenaire Slide 1 of 3: The Triple arch was erected in 1905 by King Leopold II in the Cinquantenaire park.

- Basilica of the Sacred Heart Slide 3 of 3: Located in the Koekelberg neighborhood, this architectural masterpiece features an enormous green-colored dome, a museum and a terrace with 180-degree views.
Listen to a courtyard concert, or stroll down medieval shopping lanes. A must-see is the Grand Place main square, which is surrounded by ornately decorated and stately guild buildings. One of the most unique pieces of architecture in the world, the Atomium, was designed to represent a crystal molecule of metal, but increased in size 165 billion times. You can see the most dramatic views of Brussels from the top sphere.
Another must-see is the symbol of Brussels' fun and irreverent atmosphere, Manneken Pis, a famous bronze fountain sculpture dating back to 1619 that depicts a nude little boy. Depending on the season, the statue is often dressed in a costume with a wardrobe that consists of 760 items. The costumes are changed frequently in ceremonies that are often accompanied by brass band music. Brussels is a great base for popular day trips to the beautiful towns of Bruges, Ghent and Antwerp.
If you’re in the mood to shop, Brussels has you covered. Upscale shopping venues offer ample opportunities for fashionistas, while Galeries Royales St-Hubert, a light and bright shopping arcade, features many boutique shops that are surrounded by restaurants and cafes. The city is also a mecca for comic book collectors.
Known for its waffles, chocolate and french fries, Brussels has carved a sublime dining niche all its own. This capital city is the place to come if you want to eat well. With more Michelin-starred restaurants than Paris, food lovers will be tempted with every specialty imaginable, including delicious wheat beer. And with nearly 500 chocolatiers, no trip to Brussels is complete without tickling your taste buds at a chocolate shop.
After the sun goes down, the locals love a good party. The city’s many bars and clubs serve Belgian beer and a good time till the wee hours of the morning, while avant-garde theaters, cabarets, dinner shows, concerts, opera and jazz clubs can keep you entertained until breakfast.
