Belgium offers a wide variety of destinations and activities that any traveler would enjoy. Here are just a few recommended things to do in Belgium:

Manneken Pis – In English, this means “Little Man Pee” and as the name suggests, it is a small bronze sculpture that depicts a naked little boy urinating into a fountain’s basin. It is considered as one of Belgium’s landmarks located at the junction of Rue de l'Étuve/Stoofstraat and Rue du Chêne/Eikstraat. 

Musical Instrument Museum – Located in central Brussels, this music museum is international renowned for its collection of over 8,000 instruments. The collection represents the musical history of Belgium, musical traditions of Europe as well as showcases non-European instruments. The museum is open from 9: 30 in the morning until 4:45 in the afternoon on Tuesdays to Fridays. On weekends, the museum opens half an hour later at 10 in the morning. On Mondays and on selected dates, the museum is closed. It is best to check their official website for the latest information about operating hours.

Atomium – This building in Brussels was originally constructed for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair. It stands 335 feet tall with nine stainless steel clad spheres that are 59 feet in diameter. These spheres are connected to form the shape of a unit cell or an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. Five of these spheres are accessible containing exhibit halls and other public spaces. The topmost sphere provides a panoramic view of the city.
