Things you should know about Brussels
 
  grand place

Brussels

Nobody thinks about this as a very beautiful city: indeed it is! Easy to get to and to visit, Brussels is a tranquil and relaxed city. Moreover it is the administrative center of Europe. Climate is its only flaw: you can experience spring, summer and fall (even winter, sometimes) in just one day

 
 

Grand Place - Grote Markt

Downtown Brussels is an architectonical wonder: no cars, people walking, flowers, narrow houses; historical buildings in Grand Place and the famous Galeries Royales are very close

  atomium

Esseghem

To get here, take the subway 6 and get off at Saint-Elisabeth (the last stop): the Atomium is the symbol of Brussels and it is enormous. From the top there’s a magnificent panorama of the city

 
 
Sablon - Zavel

Mont des Arts garden is wonderful: a visit should start from here. In this quarter it’s possible to admire the Royal Palace and visit the Musée des Beaux Arts, as well as the Church of Notre-Dame du Sablon

Saint-Josse-Ten-Joode

Some buildings around Treurenberg Avenue recall Paris: big windows and pastel colours in roads that suddenly open themselves into large or little squares with columns or statues (Rue de Congres, for example)

 
 

Saint Michel and Godule Cathedral

A gothic masterpiece, Saint Michel and Godul Cathedral shows beautiful carves and statues, big columns and three aisles in a luminous environment thanks to its magnificently painted windows

  botanical garden

Botanical Garden

Surrounded by skyscrapers, multicolour flowers wait for visitors at any time. It’s relaxing sitting on a bench among hedges perfectly trimmed, enjoying time passing by, or exploring the greenhouse

 
 

European Complex

Massive buildings made of glass remind that this is the center of the European Administration: take a tour to visit the European Parliament (check timing and languages beforehand)

Parc du Cinquantenaire

An impressive gate welcomes visitors who will walk from downtown to the European Buildings. Built for the World Fair in 1880 (though the gate was ready, as it appears now, only in 1905), in its complex you will find Air and Space and Royal Army Museums

 
 

Brussels Special Advices

Brussels airport is not very far from city center and buses, trains and taxis can easily take you downtown.
There are two main railway station: Gare du nord (trains headed to or coming from north and east) and Gare du Midi (trains headed to or coming from France or Great Britain).
Public transportation has a widely spread network. Travel cards for one or more days are available.
Find out a hotel in Sablon: prices are lower and city center is at walking distance so that you won’t need to use public transportation (though really good) or hire a cab to get almost anywhere
