So much to see and do! Make sure you take a camera or have full battery on your phone! You can never really get lost as all the cobbles roads lead back round to the markt - so go and explore!

City is just the right size to walk around, although it gets a bit busy around lunch time. Make sure you take a river tour - just 8 euros per adult for 30 minutes, well worth the effort.

From the old market square tour guides with a distinctive umbrella saying "free tours" offer 2-3hour walking tours. Usually they are locals who can provide an insight into life currently and historically.

Frederick Bloondel.. We took a tour of most curated chocolates in Brussels. This was by far the best .. Even better than Pierre Marcolini.
