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)."  See More

"Brussels, though not as pretty as Bruges is still lovely, the Grand Place is a fest for the eyes."  See More

"But if you go to Brussels: make sure to check out Atomium - the coolest building ever."  See More

"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

"If you want to have the panorama of the city you can go up the Arc in Parc du Cinquantenaire (entry via the Military Museum) and them continue your walk downtown via the parc arriving to Rond-Point Robert Schuman from where you can take the metro to the center passing near the European Commission."  See More
