The picture below is from google to show you how the “Flower carpet” displays on the Grand Place square. Our trip was in Fall, so I didn’t have a chance to see it.Atomium built for the 1958 Brussels World Fair (Expo’58) has become an internationally recognised symbol of the city and the whole country.Another symbol of Brussels is the sculpture of a young boy called Manneken Pis. It’s about five minutes walk from the Grand Place. They have a great souvenir store here and fun tees of Manneken Pis. This is one of my hubby’s favorite tees that I bought for him from the trip. For more sightseeing and history, you would do well to pay a visit the the Palais Royal, the Catheral, and the Musees Royaux des Beaux Arts.
One of the best parts was going shopping for hours while my hubby enjoyed drinking Belgium beer and read newspapers at the many cafe’ bars here. You should visit Saint Hubert Gallery was opened in 1847 and proud to be the first shopping mall in the world which you can find many nice boutiques, store, cafes, and restaurants. Avenue Louise is Brussels most fashionable shopping mile, you can find high-end designer brands as well as innovative Belgium designers. Check out La Rue Neuve for great shopping too.
St Hubert Gallery. Belgium beer is one of the most delicious beers in the world. Interestingly, every beer has a distinct glass into which it is poured.Chocolate is one of the many passions in Belgium. Neuhous chocolates is the best known of Belgium’s top quality chocolates. You can find many chocolate stores around the city, and make sure to visit the chocolate museum – another fun thing to do.I shouldn’t forget to mention Belgium waffles. They are delicious. I remember I had waffles with chocolate for my breakfast and lunch the whole time I was there. At the end, I gained few pounds, but it wasn’t that bad because we walked around the city a lots too..;-)
