The center of Brussels might not be paradise on earth for families with small children, but you do not need to worry. If you are a bit older there are several exciting museums in Brussels and shopping opportunities in the center, and for those longing for more action you can find very good places in the area by the Heisel stadium. Inside the Bruparck area located here you can find Mini-Europe, Oceade, restaurants and other cool activities for young and old. In the same area you can also find Atomium from where you can get a beautiful view over Brussels.
We have picked some interesting museums and featured them at our museums page. In addition we have written some suggestions for excursions from Brussels to other cities in Belgium and also to cities outside of Belgium. Look around and we are sure you will find some activities suiting you and those you will be travelling together with.
