Do not make the mistake of believing that just because Belgium is a small country, it holds little appeal, few attractions and a paucity of things to do. You could not be more wrong: there are truly diverse arrays of things to do in Brussels, its capital. A sightseeing tour will reveal just some of the splendour of this city to you. You can even combine a walking tour with a Brussels chocolate tour, for a truly delectable experience. Once you have explored Brussels, embark upon a Bruges Express journey, and delve into this charming city with its picturesque medieval centre.
The easiest way to explore Brussels, whilst also learning of its culture and history, is on a walking tour. Two attractions you may be especially surprised to discover are Brussels’ Japanese tower and extraordinary Chinese pavilion, which attest to the cultural multiplicity of the city. The Royal Square and Royal Palace are sights to behold.
A particularly striking landmark is that of St Michael’s Cathedral, the pre-eminent church in not just Brussels, but indeed the whole of Belgium. A visit to this monumental landmark is one of the key things to do in Brussels. The exterior of the cathedral is formidably sublime. Arguably, the most breathtaking aspect of its interior is its stained glass windows, designed by a range of celebrated artists.
For an unconventional, distinctive experience, complete your Brussels sightseeing tour with a visit to a renowned chocolatier. Grand Sablon Square is home to the very finest chocolate in the city, and it is here that three of the most exceptional chocolatiers can be located – Pierre Marcolini, Wittamer and Neuhaus, each of which specialize in a certain type of chocolate production. Perhaps even take part in a chocolate workshop.
For a Brussels sightseeing tour that diverges from the norm, take a walking tour of the city succeeded by a Brussels chocolate tour. Once you have thoroughly explored Brussels’ many alluring attractions, it may be a sagacious idea to go on a Bruges Express tour. Delve into the singular charms of the quaint medieval township of Bruges.
