Reasons to Visit
The Atomium is an impressive 102 metre structure of the nine atoms of a molecule in steel and aluminium. It was built for the 1958 Expo and was not intended to survive it, but its popularity and success ensured its place as a major landmark on the Brussels skyline. The spheres can be visited and contain scientific exhibits. There is also a restaurant and viewpoint in the top sphere.
House of Science Liège
As well as the House of Science covering Physics, Chemistry and Biology there is the Liege Aquarium and the Zoology Museum. There is so much on offer here that there is sure to be something for everyone, regardless of taste and age. These attractions are all located within a historic University building, off the Quai Van Beneden.
Euro Space Centre (South Belgium)
Euro Space Centre is dedicated to space travel and learning about the galaxies and planets. See full size replicas of the US Space Shuttle and a Belgian-built laboratory on the European Space Observatory. There's lots to do be learnt on the standard 2-hour trip with plenty of hands-on experiences!
Planetarium of the Royal Observatory of Belgium
One of the largest planetariums in Europe where eight projectors immerse you in an impressive image projected onto the surface of the roof of 840 m2. Thanks to a rich astronomical database of over 100,000 stars, it is now possible to travel between planets, flying over the surface of Mars, approaching the rings of Saturn!
The PASS Museum
The exhibitions and events combine an educational approach with fun experiments to arouse students' curiosity, stimulate questions and encourage them to learn more and develop their critical faculties. The themes covered vary widely: from the human body to genetics, from television to programming a robot... the aim is to see daily life from another perspective, through the prism of a scientific, technical and humanist culture.
Living Tomorrow is a unique attraction designed to demonstrate the latest trends and innovations in working and living. Three thematic guided tours are available to illustrate what work and home life will look like in the future; the sustainable development of our planet around water, health, energy, food and natural resources; the future of medicine and health care.
Mini Europe (Brussels)
This six acre park is situated at the foot of the Atomium monument and has mini statues of all major European monuments including the Brandenburg Gate, Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower. They are exact models on a scale of 1:25.
Sea Life Centre
Explore the North Sea’s underwater world at Belgium’s largest aquarium.
Walibi & Aqualibi
Over fifty attractions and shows including roller coasters, rides and family entertainment, as well as a large waterpark.
Canals of Bruges
Because of its canals Bruges is often called 'The Venice of the North'. The water situation in both cities was, however, very different. Venice was founded on islands in a lagoon of the Adriatic sea. Bruges lies deeper inland; at least now, because in the five centuries B.C the Flemish coastline must have been flooded several times by the North Sea. When the waters retreated they left behind different sea-arms via which ships could reach the area where now Bruges is situated.
One of the most beautiful squares in the world, the Grand Place is Brussel's most treasured centrepiece. In 1998, it was selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is an outstanding blend of architectural and artistic styles. The square is surrounded by Brussels’ Town Hall, nearly forty guildhalls and other beautiful buildings from the 14th to 17th century. The 110 by 68 metre Grand Place is also home of the Flower Carpet, a bi-annual event featuring the creation of a colorful carpet design using more than 700,000 cut flowers.
