Stop at: Manneken Pis, 46 Rue de l’Etuve corner or rue du Chene and rue de l’Etuve, Brussels 1000 Belgium

Mannekin Pis Along the Rue de l’Etuve is the most famous monument in Brussels, the Manneken Pis, usually besieged by a crowd of tourists. Although it can be traced back to at least 1388, not much is known about the origin of the figure of a boy who urinated, popularly referred to as “the oldest citizen of Brussels.” However, the Manneken is surrounded by various legends. According to one, the fountain is a memorial for a brave child who has averted a fireworks display, according to another it commemorates the son of a count who succumbed to an urgent urge while participating in a procession. The current statue was made in 1619 by Jérôme Duquesnoy the Elder and was stolen on various occasions but always recovered. During big parties,

Stop at: Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudule, Parvis Sainte-Gudule Treurenberg Hill, Brussels 1000 Belgium

Dedicated to St. Michael and St. Gudula (the patron saints of Brussels), this Gothic church was first founded in 1225, but only completed in the 15th century. The facade is impressive, majestic rising above a wide staircase and crowned with two 69-meter high towers designed by Jan van Ruysbroeck. The beautifully proportioned interior (108 meters by 50 meters) is richly furnished and houses some excellent stained glass windows made by Bernard van Orley. Go to the transepts to see the finest examples of Charles V and Isabella of Portugal (southern transept) and the Hungarian royal couple Louis II and Mary (northern transept), and then in the chapel of the Holy Sacrament, to the left of the choir, where the window illustrates the story of the miracle of the host.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop at: Royal Palace (Palais Royal), Place des Palais, Brussels 1000 Belgium

A favorite attraction for photo-ops, the most important building on this square is the Royal Palace (Palais Royal), which is used by the Belgian royal family as an official residence. The Belgian flag, flown from the roof, signals the presence of the sovereign and a ceremonial changing of the guard takes place every day at around 2.30 p.m. Around the palace is an ensemble of cultural buildings with neoclassical facades. The Palais des Académies, home to the Royal Academy of Sciences and once the residence of the crown prince of Orange, and the Palais des Beaux-Arts (Palace of Fine Arts) on the west side of the square, designed and built in the 1920s by Victor Horta, are two of the best examples.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop at:Atomiumsquare, 1020 Brussels, Belgium

Together with Manneken Pis, the Atomium is the most famous landmark in Brussels, and although it is a bit of a tram ride to get here, the bizarre 102-meter-high steel and aluminum structure, designed by architect André Waterkeyn for the world exhibition of Brussels in 1958, is the most surrealistic sight of the city. The building represents a molecule of iron that has been magnified 165 million times, and visitors can enter the interior where four of the nine spheres are now used to present a show about human life called Biogenium.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop at: Mont des Arts, Brussels 1000 Belgium

The Kunstberg was created between 1956 and 1958 and occupied the elevated location between Koningsplein and Albertplein. The architecturally impressive complex of large buildings includes the Albert I Library and the strikingly modern Palais de la Dynasty and Palais de Congrès. From the square between them is a nice view of the lower central city. The Albert I Library was established during the Burgundian rule and consists of more than three million parts together with a valuable collection of manuscripts and various interesting museums.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop at: Notre Dame du Sablon, Rue de la Régence / Regentsschapsstraat 3b Entrance rue des Sablons and rue de la Régence, Brussels 1000 Belgium

The Notre Dame on the Sablon from the 15th to 16th centuries, generally regarded as one of the most beautiful late Gothic churches in Belgium, was built as a replacement for a small chapel that was first built on the sand flat of the Sablon by the Guild of Crossbowmen in 1304. The interior of the church is breathtaking, especially because of the beautiful stained glass. Also interesting is the burial chapel of the Thurn und Taxis family, partly the work of Luc Fayd’herbe. A figure of the Virgin is kept in the sacrarium, a legend says, of a Madonna who was brought to the chapel in 1348 by a woman from Antwerp, Baet Soetens, to whom the Virgin had appeared.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop at:Parc du Cinquantenaire, Avenue de la Renaissance 1000 Brussels, Belgium, Brussels 1000 Belgium

The Cinquantenaire park was established in 1880 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the country. The centerpiece is the monumental Cinquantenaire Park, whose two wings, connected in 1905 by a huge triumphal arch designed by the French architect Charles Girault, house two of the most interesting museums in Brussels. The Royal Art and History Museum houses one of the most extensive carpet collections in the world, and the Belgian Army Museum and the Museum of Military History (Royal Museum of the Army and Military History) offer an overview of the development of army technology and of the major campaigns fought on Belgian soil.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop at:National Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Parvis de la Basilique 1, Koekelberg, Brussels 1081 Belgium

The Koekelberg district is dominated by the enormous Basilique Nationale du Sacré Coeur (National Basilica of the Sacred Heart), the fourth largest church in the world and the brainchild of Leopold II, started in 1905 on the occasion of the country’s 75th anniversary. The building was only completed in 1970. It is not surprising that it displays something of a mix of styles, but still impresses with its enormous size (141 meters by 107 meters). Inside is an excellent art collection and a continuous exhibition about the history of the basilica. The image of Christ giving his blessing, hanging above the altar, is by Georges Minne.
