Top 6 Places To Visit While in Brussels

1.  Grand Place is the center of Brussels, where many historic buildings dating from the 17th century are located.

2.  Moof Museum- A modern museum-  Experience the cartoon otherwise! The Moof (Museum of original figures) immerses you in the third dimension of the ninth art through a unique collection of collectible figurines.

3.  Royal Theatre Toone- Marionatte Theatre in the family for apparently eight generations, bit of a tourist trap but the beers are good and there are spooky marionettes all over and even some for sale.

4.  Cinquantenaire- In the Cinquantenaire Museum,you can see national archaeological artefacts from prehistory to the age of the Merovingians, as well as finds from Egypt, the Near East, Iran and Classical Antiquity. Among the star attractions are the collections of Egyptian sarcophagi and Greek vases, the great mosaic floor from Apamea and the model of Ancient Rome. There are also non-European art treasures from China, South-east Asia, Central Asia, the cultural world of Islam, America and Oceania. Particularly famous is the collection of pre-Columbian art and another eye-catcher is the colossal statue from Easter Island

5.  Royal Palace (Palais Royal)- Open to the public in the month of August.  In addition to the office of the King and the Queen is home to the Royal Palace is also the services of the Cabinet of the King, the Intendant of the Civil List of the King, Head of the Military House of the King, the Chief of Protocol of the Court, Head of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Head of the Department of petitions and Social Affairs.  Located across from the Natiënpaleis, at the other end of the Royal Park, the Royal Palace, in fact symbolizes their regime, the constitutional monarchy.

6.  Nightlife- Le Corbeau is well known for its typical Belgian pub decoration: wooden walls, wooden tables, wooden chairs. Basically everything is in wood!

If you want to eat well with a limited budget, this might be the place for you to go! Also, after 10 PM, the restaurant transforms itself into a nightclub!

There is so much more to see in Brussels it will take more than one trip to really appreciate.

Little Known Facts: 

Brussels is located in the northern half of Belgium just above the main language border which separates the Flemish-speaking northern region and the French-speaking southern region of Belgium.

The country is bordered by four countries: France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg and has a coast facing the North Sea across from the United Kingdom.

Brussels’ transport infrastructure is highly developed and the city is easily reachable by air, train, bus, car and even ferry. 

Belgium Currency is the Euro and is easy to make the switch from dollars to pounds.

Using Euros
Euros bills come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 euro bills. When using your debit card to withdraw funds from your bank account, you will normally be offered denominations of 5, 10, 20 and 50 euro bills.

Euro coins come in denominations of 1-cent, 2-cents, 5-cents, 10-cents, 20-cents, 50-cents, 1-euro and 2-euro coins. One can collect quite a few coins over the course of a few purchases so we recommend buying a little plastic money holder that keeps coin denominations separate.

The time zone is GMT.
