Best Things To Do in Brussels

Tourists can visit the historic Palais Royal, once home to the Belgian royal family, before climbing to the top of the Palais de Justice. Discover your inner child at the Belgian Comic Strip Museum, take a whirlwind tour of the continent at Mini-Europe or tickle your taste buds at a chocolate shop. Just don't forget to pay a visit to Brussels' favorite little fountain, the Manneken Pis, to see what fashion the little statue is sporting.
