There are so many amazing places to visit in Belgium for those of you looking for an indulgent European getaway! Belgium has a sweet reputation for its chocolate making abilities, and for very good reason. But there is so much more, too! Belgian beer, Belgian waffles, and mussels: okay, I’m seeing a trend in my thoughts here. There really is a lot to see and do in Belgium aside from pampering your palate. Let’s take a look around, and dream about the places to visit in Belgium, together.
1. The Atomium, Brussels
We are made up of atoms, but take a trip to the Atomium and you get to explore the inside of one! Okay, not literally, but this permanent exhibition has plenty to offer. There are always temporary exhibitions within the five spheres of the Atomium, but what really makes it one of the places to visit in Belgium is the view it offers. Have a gourmet meal in their restaurant, which is located in the top sphere and enjoy a birds eye view of the city and beyond. Want to see Brussels at night? Not a problem. The restaurant is open until 11 p.m. so you can see the city light up during dessert.
