Half day in brussels on a sunday


My husband, father and I will be traveling to brussels on a sunday in June. I am quite disappointed because one of the only things i have wanted to do is to go to the cantillon brewery. It is closed on sundays. We might consider going on a different day, but if not (or if so for that matter) what are the things that we absolutely need to do. I am completely fine with walking around, eating waffles, chocolate and drinking beer, but figured maybe i would see what other musts are in the city. We decided to stay in bruges rather than brussels but figured we would take a detour to stop on the way.

any suggestions are welcome! thank you!

For how long will you be staying in Belgium? You can always visit Brussels on another day. A train ride from Bruges to Brussels is only about an hour....

The Brewery Museum in the Grand' Place is open on Sundays, see opt.be/informations/…15792.html

The entry fee includes a free beer at the end, but as the museum is sponsored by different Belgian brewers in rotation, it isn't possible to say whether it will be a Gueuze as at Cantillon.

Also close by are many atmospheric little bars, such as the one attached to the Toone puppet theatre off Petite rue des Bouchers, and if you visit the Mannekin Pis, this is right next to another beer bar, the Poechenellekelder (which is the only place in Brussels where the bill comes in Bruxellois). If you're interested in comic strip murals, there are several around this area, including one on the wall of the building next to Poechenellekelder, to see it you have to go uphill slightly (street to the right of the MP) and then turn around.

The Grand' Place is only a few minutes' walk from Gare centrale, where you can get off the train from Brugge.
