I’ve just come back from a 4 day trip to Brussels! My main reason for visiting, was to take part in the Museum Marathon on International Museum Day last Wednesday (18th May): 1 day, 17 museums, 20km and over 25,000 steps! But I also had some additional time to go sightseeing and see a bit more of the rest of Brussels, so just wanted to share some photos of that here. As you will see, the weather changed from a bit cloudy and murky on my arrival, to blazing sunshine and blue skies by the time I left. I hope you enjoy the photos!
Brussels Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula
Galeries Royales St Hubert
Picturesque side street
Parc du Cinquantenaire with the Arcade du Cinquantenaire – remind you of anything?
The Belgian flag
Pretty landscaped gardens
Asterix & Obelix mural at a basketball court
The Grand Place – you can see where it gets its name from!
Gilded buildings sparkling in the sunshine
Painted building in central Brussels
The famous Mannekin-Pis fountain
Love the little rooftop garden!
