Make sure you head over to the Galleries de Bruxelles for some shopping and street performers. You’re likely to be welcomed into this Gringott/Diagon Alley center to the sound of jazz coming from the streets behind you. Inside the galleries, you will find toy stores, libraries, sweet shops and hat shops. Check out the exciting window displays to see if you want to explore the store further.
Stroll along les Étangs d’Ixelles (Ponds of Ixelles) and admire the birds as they swim around gleefully.
Le Botanique is a beautiful art and music venue with a luscious garden. It’s a beautiful place to spend an afternoon.
Go see the Grand Place twice. See it one in the day, where you can admire the baroque architecture of the buildings surrounding you. Then again at night, to see the lights illuminate the Town Hall and make it come to life.
There you have it! I’ll be coming out with a Tel Aviv and Cairo travel article soon, so be sure to stay tuned. Remember, if you do any of the things I’ve recommended, send me a picture of tag me @elenalovegood
