In the heart of Brussels. Near "Place St Catherine".
I do not recommend this house to family with children because of the steep stairs.

Near the South train station, which connects Brussels to other cities in Europe, is one of the last traditional breweries, Cantillon. Almost nothing has changed since the brewery opened in 1900. See the open vats where their signature Lambic beer is cooled, and the oak wood barrels where it's aged for up to three years.

But beer isn't all the country has to offer.

Built in 1958 when Brussels hosted the World's Fair, the Atomium is a cross between sculpture and architecture. It's modeled after a crystallized molecule of iron magnified 150 thousand million times. Escalators take visitors to expositions in the various spheres, and the upper sphere houses a restaurant, Chez Adrienne.

At the foot of the Atomium is Mini Europe, the only place where touring the continent takes just a few hours. Roughly 80 cities and 350 buildings are represented. Marvel at impressive reproductions of Europe's most attractive monuments, watch Mount Vesuvius erupt, and see a Finnish girl dive into icy waters.

The crown jewel of Brussels' Old Town is the Grand Place, built as a merchants' market in the 13th century. Tour the striking Gothic town hall or people watch from a café. Then, wander the surrounding cobblestone streets. Stroll through the Galeries St. Hubert, a glass roofed arcade lined with cafes, theaters, and luxury shops. Also be sure to see the Manneken Pis, the famous bronze sculpture of a boy peeing in a fountain.

Learn about Belgian chocolate at the Chocolate Museum, then visit some of the Brussels' most celebrated chocolate shops. Wittamer, in the heart of the city, is a family-owned chocolatier that's been in business since 1910. It's the official chocolate supplier to the Belgian Court. Marcolini opened his first store in 1995, the same year he was named the World Champion of Pastry.

When Bruxellois devour this unofficial national dish (moules frites), they eat the first mussel with their fingers and then scoop up the rest using the empty shell as a utensil. Moules frites can be found at most restaurants, but if you're near the Grand Place, try the mid-range and delicious L'Estaminet du Kelderke.

Did you know that Tintin was created by a Belgian artist? You would if you visited Brussels' Comic Strip Museum. See original pages of comic artwork, sketches and memorabilia.

Puppet performance nestled at the end of a cobblestone alley in Old Town is Café Toone, whose cozy building dates from 1696. Enjoy a drink with locals downstairs, then head up to the attic for a show like no other: marionettes perform Shakespeare and other classics.

Hop-on, hop-off bus tours, offered by Brussels City Tours, give a good overview of the city's most famous sights. Catch the bus outside Central Station.

For do-it-yourselfers, take a walking tour of Brussels' most upscale designers, explore the city's antique and flea markets, or experience its beautiful green spaces.

As the European capital, Brussels is home to the European Union headquarters. Take an audio-guided tour of the European Parliament, the elected body of the EU. During sessions, you can even attend a parliamentary sitting.

Brilliant location. Fantastic apartment. Jacques-Yves was an excellent host, he gave us lots of information and let us check out at anytime. We would definitely recommend. Be aware of the stairs - we loved them, but less mobile people may struggle.
