Brussels city breaks
The Magritte Museum is an obvious choice for many; this renowned museum showcases some of the most celebrated of his works.
Other museums dedicate themselves to equally distinguished masters of the craft; the Roger Raveel museum pays homage to the prodigy, viewed by many as one of the most tremendous and significant Belgian artists since the Second World War.
For an entirely different experience, visit the Horta Museum, dedicated to Victor Horta, one of the illustrious founders of the Art Noveau movement. The museum itself is the house he in fact planned and constructed for himself.
The Royal Museum of the Fine Arts of Belgium is yet another eminent cultural site that you simply must take some time to visit.
For a more unusual yet compelling experience, discover the Cinematek, a museum that takes a nostalgic look back to the 'golden age' of cinema, timeless classics that will never be forgotten.
Savour Belgian Chocolate
Belgian chocolate is world famed, and Brussels is home to some of the finest chocolate around. Perhaps buy from Pierre Marcolini, a gourmet chocolatier whose creations are particularly highly sought after.
Brussels also has a thriving music scene. Make the most of its diverse and numerous forms of live music as you unwind with a drink in the evening, or perhaps choose to stop at one of its many clubs.
Do not make the mistake of bypassing this small yet alluring city.
