How to spend the most perfect 24 hours in Brussels Belgium


Brussels is possible to be done in 24 hours so if you have just that much time keep that smile. Often referred to as the centre of Europe because of the virtue of being the centre of european culture and institutions, Brussels is a city beautiful like from a fairy tale. Gold plated buildings, cobble stone streets adorned by string lights sure are a sight from the fairy world.

8 am - 11 am. Begin your day with the main pilgrimage in Brussels The Grand place. Very rightly named. The architecture is stunning and the gold plated on the buildings is a sight to marvel. The whole square deserves some time and is very photogenic. I suggest you do cover the Grand Place first thing in the morning because it gets crowded for obvious reasons. There are many traditional belgium cafes and restaurants in the square where you can fuel yourself with delicious breakfast. It can be Belgian waffles or just the usual european fare. I suggest go for waffles. Also worth checking are the many cute streets branching out from the grand place.  Manneken Pis a 61 cm bronze fountain statue of a boy said to be the symbol of Brussels is also close by. 

11 am - 2 pm. The Atomium built in 1958 for the world expo. Over the years it has become symbolic of Brussels and a must visit. There is a restaurant on the highest sphere where you can have lunch and also indulge in spectacular panoramic views over the city. 

2 pm - 3.30 pm. Just at the foot of The Atomium is Mini Europe. i.e Europe in a few hours. An animated tour with visual and sound effects of 350 miniatures and attractions that you won’t find anywhere else. You can see many famous european monuments like Big Ben, Eiffel Tower, etc at a scale of 1 to 25. Be amazed by various working models like the fall of Berlin wall, etc. Also get an understanding of the working of EU. 

3.30 pm - 4 pm. Parc de Laeken. Brussels has huge parks and this one is the biggest about 10 minutes walk from the miniature park. 

4 PM - 6.30 PM. The Belgium chocolate village, well belgium chocolates are world famous so a definite visit to savour the chocolates produced by local artisans on the daily. Closely located and worth checking out are Elisabeth park and National Basilica of the sacred heart which is the fifth largest catholic basilica. 

6.30 pm - 8.30 pm. Come back to the centre of the city and end your day with dinner at. Go for traditional belgium.  and also savour the desserts. Ah i love the belgium bread and butter too and the Belgium fries yes the Belgium fries that the world knows as french fries. A must snack on during the day !!

Post dinner just walk around the centre and soak in to the architecture around.
