Brussels

  • Start the tour at the Atomium, Brussels' main landmark which was constructed in 1958 to celebrate the Universal Exhibition Expo '58. The Atomium is situated on the Heysel plateau where Belgian monarchy lives. 

  • See the Royal Palace of Laeken, where King Filip, Queen Mathilde, and their four children live.

  • Drive past the Royal Greenhouses, the Chinese Pavilion, and the Japanese Tower, all reminiscent of the second Belgian King Leopold II.

  • Discover Brussels Uptown with the Cathedral, Royal Palace, Belgian Parliament building, Fine Arts Museum, Sablon district, and the 19th century Palace of Justice.

  • See the European Union buildings situated in the Eastern Part of Brussels. You will see the Berlaymont Building (Europen Commission), building of the Council of the European Union, and also the European Parliament which is situated at Luxembourg square.

  • Go further East for a visit to the Jubilee Park with the Triumphal Arch and three museums: the Military Museum, Auto World, and the Museum of Art and History.

  • Walk through the Old Town where you will see the Galeries Saint-Hubert, a covered commercial passage dating back to 1847, and the narrow Butchers' street full of restaurants.

  • Pay a visit to Manneken Pis, the famous historical statue of a peeing boy representing the rebel side of the city as well as art in general.

  • Finish off the tour at the Grand Place, where you will be dazzled by the 102-meter high spire of the Town Hall, and the guild houses decorated with gold leaves.
