Quirkily contradictory: not what the average tourist might expect of the EU’s capital, until they catch a flight there. As offbeat as it is stuffy, Brussels is a chocolate-dipped enigma in the heart of Belgium, complete with fine food, surrealism and some zany things to do.
The Atomium: This 102-metre model of an iron crystal is Brussels’ most iconic feature. Permanent and temporary exhibits are on display inside five of its nine spheres.
The Comic Book Route: A series of 50 murals depicting Belgium’s most famous cartoon characters, like Tintin and Lucky Luke, is an off-the-beaten-path excursion through the centre of the city.
Tram Experience: Climb aboard the repurposed trolley and enjoy a three-course meal prepared by Michelin-starred chefs as you wind your way through the city on a two-hour tour.
