Brussels Highlights

The Atomium

The Atomium is a monument built for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. Designed by André Waterkeyn, it is 102-metres (335 ft) tall, with nine steel spheres connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. Go through five of the nine spheres and end your visit at the restaurant with stunning panoramic views.

Grand Place/Grote Markt

The Grote Markt(Dutch) or Grand Place (French) is the central square of Brussels. It is surrounded by guildhalls, the city's Town Hall, and the Breadhouse. The square is the most important tourist destination and most memorable landmark in Brussels (along with the Atomium and Manneken Pis). It measures 68 by 110 metres (220 ft x 360 ft), and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Manneken Pis

Manneken Pis (Dutch for little man urinating), also known in French as the petit Julien, is a famous Brussels landmark. It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin.
