Brussels, Belgium

Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Grand Place and Boat Tours & Water Sports. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ghent City Center and Antwerpen-Centraal. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Bruges (Belfry of Bruges & The Markt). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), see the interesting displays at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), make a trip to Atomium, and pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis.
