Brussels - Beer, chocolate and that wee statue

  • Light and magic

    The bell tower of the Town Hall is one of the finest Gothic buildings in the city. The light show makes it look like the home of Sauron.

  • Balls of steel

    A model of an iron crystal is the well-known remains of the World Expo 1958. The top sphere is the viewing platform, the connecting tubes are actually escalators and we had a nice beer in the middle sphere.

  • Peeing since 1619

    The world's most well-known little flasher actually has 500 different costumes for various occasions, but we managed to catch him in the flesh.

  • Pink elefants

    I liked the closed Delirium bar in Gothenburg, but this is the original one. It is located in a small alley and we found it by chance. It features an impressive 2000 kinds of beer (it got into the Guinness book of world records in 2004) with 27 on tap. The tap system in the bar is fascinating to watch.

  • Beneath the glass

    This shopping arcade is one of the most elegant in Europe, and it has a beautiful name as well.

  • To the moon

    The museum filled with Tintin, Gaston and Lucky Luke is located in a beautiful Art Noveau building.

  • Black as midnight on a moonless night

  • Royal wardrobe

    This ancient building houses the bizarre 500+ wardrobe of Manneken-Pis.

    [Maison du Roi, Grand Place]

  • Headshot

    This narrow alley is named after the butchers' shops that were located here in medieval times.

  • Chill out

    Maison du Roi and the guild houses are intricate buildings in Belgian limestone.

  • A slice of heaven

    Leonidas is one of the great Belgian chocolate stores.

  • A taste of Belgium

    One of my favorite beers, St Bernardus Pater 6 is the perfect companion to a chocolate tasting session with Godiva, Neuhaus and Leonidas.
