Whoever said Brussels was boring had clearly never been.
Here is a list of the things to see and do while there.
The city’s very own “cheeky boy” is the Manneken Pis, a bronze statue depicting a boy peeing into the fountain basin below.
The dreamy, den-like interior of this former brothel on Rue de la Violette fabulous.
The crowd is mostly bohemian arty types without a care in the world, although the clientele can get a little “risqué” later into the night.
Moules Frites at Au Vieux Bruxelles
The brasserie has been serving French fries and mussels since 1882.
Set your table manners aside.
Eat the first few with your fingers and once you have a couple of spare shells, use these as utensils to pinch the rest. Then get into a beer.
The main square, ‘Grand Place’ is where people go mingle at café terraces.
The Belgian love their beer and there are hundreds of varieties to choose from.
Go local and you can’t go wrong.
Try Lapin à la Kriek, a hearty rabbit stew flavored with beer too.
