|About these ratings|
In reality, Europe is a very big place, and unless you have years to dedicate, there's no hope of seeing everything. Or you could go to Mini-Europe. This five-acre theme park north of central Brussels features scale models of Europe's biggest and best, from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to Seville's renowned bullfighting ring, London's Big Ben to Naples' steaming Mount Vesuvius. In just a day, you can see more than 300 of this continent's best sights. Be sure to bring your kids: many of the park's mini-attractions are interactive.
As one traveler tells TripAdvisor: "I thought this park might be more appropriate for children but it's definitely worthwhile for adults, too. The thoughtfulness to detail for each of the sites replicated is quite amazing." But if you don't have little ones in tow, you can probably find better ways to spend your time in Brussels.
Mini-Europe sits right next to the Atomium and is accessible by metro from the center city. The park's hours vary depending on the season; admission starts at about €14 EUR (less than $20 USD) but you can buy combo tickets to Oceade or the Atomium to save some dough.
