Walking around the city center is easy, start with the Grand Place and from there the Manneken Pis is really close. The surrounding streets are lovely, make sure you discover all of them while you can try many chocolate places and beer bars. If you book a room in the city center you don't even have to spend on public transport too much.

MIM has a great view from the terrace, some of the biggest museum collections with free admission first Wed of the month after 1 p. m., but be organized, you have only 4 hours to see as much as possible. Natural history museum takes the whole day, if you are interested in nature. But you can combine the visit with a sight-seeng of the EU palaces not far from the museum.

We only had one night but the few hours we spent walking around were great. The most fun thing for us was trying to work out which language to try and speak to the locals in- French? Dutch? German? It's always fun having waiters try out a handful of languages on you too- it would be great to be so multilingual, it was excellent.

As we didn't stay long we didn't get time to explore properly, but the bits we did see were beautiful.

The whole country appears to be geared up and ready to provide excellent cuisine at every turn. This encourages competition and whilst this is not reflected in the prices, so much, it is absolutely personified in the quality and quantity provided.

There is only Grand Palace in Brussels City to see - provided you keep your hand on you wallet all the time. But you can go to Brugges, Gent or Luxemburg if you are interested in charming old buildings and calm and quiet streets.
