School Trips to Brussels
Although Brussels is the de facto capital of the European Union it's not all completely serious.
Have you ever wanted to see how Europe would look like to a giant? Wonder no more because of Mini Europe. Ever wondered why the Manneken Pis (don't laugh) has been stolen seven times? Go and see it and learn of its significance to the city.
Of course, there is another side to Brussels. NATO and the European Parliament have their homes there, and there are over 100 museums to cater for those who wish to consume international culture. Paying a visit to the iconic Atomium will give the budding scientists an in-depth view of how the atom works, while visiting the Planetarium will give you a view of the constellations like never before. For the motoring enthusiasts, a trip to Autoworld will quench the thirst with over 400 cars on display, as well as displaying a time-line outlining how motor manufacturing has changed over the years.
