Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:
"If you have time, it's also fun to track down Brussels' Pissing Trio - the Manneken Pis (the little boy), the Jeanneke-Pis (the little girl, who's elevated to head height and kept behind bars since her 'kidnap' a few years ago) and the Zinneke Pis (a mongrel raising his leg against a bollard, and by far the best of the lot)."

"If you can, just stop at Bruxelles Central, a few hotels nearby, just a few hundred metres from Grand Place and the main attractions." See More
"But if you go to Brussels: make sure to check out Atomium - the coolest building ever." See More
