Things to do in Brussels

Browse the many art galleries and museums strewn across the city, savour some of the world’s best beers in an art deco café and hunt for lost treasures at the flea market in the Marollen quarter.

Brussels Atomium

Belgium’s answer to the Eiffel tower, the Atomium is a 165 billion times magnified cell of an iron crystal consisting of nine spheres connected by escalators. Standing 102 metres tall, the view from the top sphere is the best in the city.
