What to do in Brussels

The bilingual capital of Belgium, Brussels melds culinary delights with historic architecture like no other European city. Vacationers walk the narrow cobblestoned streets while enticing scents of twice-fried skinny frites and mussels merge with those of rich Belgian chocolate and freshly baked waffles. The Grand Place, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Baroque city center, is surrounded by medieval guild houses and the gothic Town Hall, built in 1420. Beer lovers will find hundreds of Belgian beers, including the monk-produced Trappist brews. A short walk away is the Manneken Pis, the famous 17th-century statue of a boy urinating into a fountain. For a more educational experience, visitors can check out an eclectic assortment of museums in Brussels, from the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken to the Belgian Comic Strip Center.
