Banish those tired jokes about ‘boring Brussels’ and discover how fun it really is! The capital of the EU has grown into a vibrant, beautiful city, filled with an enviable mixture of shiny modern buildings and quaint historic architecture. Brussels is anything but boring, especially when it comes to gastronomy. While the delicious waffles are undoubtedly popular, Brussels is also renowned for its wonderful chocolate, sumptuous mussels and tasty beer. And you don’t even have to finish up your Brussels sprouts if you don’t want to.
The Atomium – Remember those minuscule children in Honey, I Shrunk The Kids? Well, you can pretend to be one of them when you visit this shiny, gigantic model of an iron crystal. Originally built for the World’s Fair in 1958, this amazing building features nine spheres, connected by escalators. Each sphere is an exhibition hall, and visitors can explore the whole structure by travelling on the escalators. You’ll get to experience what it feels like to be the size of an atom, but you won’t need to run away from any pesky giant insects! For an instant change in size, visit the Mini-Europe Park located at the foot of the Atomium. You’ll feel like a giant as you walk by the models of European landmarks.
Belga Queen – Housed in the former bank, this restaurant serves up an elegant version of traditional Belgian cuisine. The menu showcases some of the best seafood Brussels has to offer, along with carefully selected cuts of meat from local farmers. Start with some juicy, tender scallops or shrimps, and move on to the meatier offerings on the menu. You’ll also find more familiar items on the menu, such as sirloin steak with béarnaise sauce, and a very satisfying dish of meatballs and chips.
Brussels Welcome Hotel – Travel around the world while without leaving this little hotel in the centre of town. The Welcome Hotel’s seventeen rooms are all decorated to the style of a different country, for example, the Japan room features a kimono hanging on the wall, while the Bali room has beautiful carved wooden furniture from Indonesia. The luxurious suites – Silk Road and Egypt – also offer great views over St. Catherine Square. The buffet breakfast is simple but filling, and the hotel can also arrange for deliveries from several restaurants in the area. Room rates start at about £130.
