Discover historic buildings and political Europe in Brussels
The Belgian capital of Brussels offers a stimulating mix of historical architecture and modern-day attractions.
Brussels may be Europe's political center, but it has far more to offer than just the European Parliament. The Belgian Comic Strip Center and the Mini Europe miniature amusement park, for example, steer curious visitors off the beaten path. However, the city is best known for its historic buildings.
Juxtaposition of historical and modern monuments of power
Brussels abounds with attractions, particularly in architecture. The Atomium is world-famous and provides a panorama of the city. For an equally spectacular view, climb up to the Mont des Arts, the park created by King Leopold II. The Grand Place, for its part, presents a staggering array of historical facades. Steigenberger Wiltcher's is an excellent starting point for touring the Grand Place: it's only a short walk away.
