A must for food and drink lovers!
With hundreds of beers to sample, Belgian chocolates galore and oodles of 'moules frites' you won’t go hungry in Brussels. We know where to go to hunt down world-class chocolates and see all the best sites!
NOT TO BE MISSED
The Atomium has become one of Brussels' most iconic monuments - it's Belgium's Eiffel Tower!
Built in 1958 it stands at 102 metres tall and is made up of 9 linked spheres that make up the shape of an atom. Each sphere hosts a different exhibition and from the one at the top you can see the whole city and surroundings.
On a clear day you can see as far as Antwerp!
ILOVETOUR's Dom says it's by far his favourite landmark in Brussels.
Visit the heart of the European Union while you're in Brussels for a fascinating insight into the workings of the Parliament.
We can organise a guided tour for your group, which includes a short lecture on the history and access to the Plenary Chamber.
The visitors centre is modern & interactive so there's plenty to learn.
We highly recommend a half day trip for Politics or Economics societies as the building is vast and there's plenty to take in.
FOOD & DRINK
You will not go hungry in Brussels!
Belgium is well known for offering a huge variety of beers and it's easy to spend a weekend ambling through the streets stopping to sample a pint in the bars as you go. You should also know that the food is senstational!
We can't pretend we're not obsessed with the Belgian chocolate shops, which there are no shortage of but there's more.... Waffles waffles waffles! We'd eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if there wasn't so much else to try. Grab them from a stall or takeaway as a quick brekkie to start the day.
Another absolute must is fritkot - fries done right! We're talking a massive cone filled to the brim with chips and sauces galore.
The medieval town of Bruges is just an hour from Brussels and we highly recommend it as a day trip.
Walking around the town makes you feel like part of a fairy tale.
You will be surrounded by chocolate shops, market stalls & picturesque churches. The boat tour is a must as it's the best way to see the whole town in an hour.
Bruges is beautiful all year round but it's best in winter when the town is much less busy with tourists and you can enjoy skating, mulled wine, Christmas shopping & chocolate samplong to your heart's content.
