Horta Museum

Art Nouveau was practically born in Brussels. Victor Horta (1861-1947), considered Brussels' master of the art, designed this house and made it his residence until 1919. It was restored in 1991 and is now a museum. Horta is known for his design of buildings using industrial materials such as metal and iron, manipulated to look organic and natural. The city features many similar buildings.

Art & History Museum

The Cinquantenaire Museum, also called the Jubelpark Museum, is part of Brussels's Royal Museums of Art and History, was once the one of largest museums in the world. All artistic disciplines except paintings are on display here. The first section displays a collection of ancient Egyptian (one room alone is filled with mummies and sarcophagi), Islamic, Oriental, Greek and Roman art. The second section is dedicated to non-European art and the third section houses a collection of European decorative arts spanning the 7th to the 17th-century. Other fascinating collections of beautiful glass and ceramics are also on display here.

Parc d'Egmont

Facing the Egmont Palace, on Rue aux Laines, Egmont Park is home to several sculptures. Of all the statues within, the statues of Peter Pan and that of Price Charles-Joseph de Ligne are much adored. A slice of peace and quiet amid the bustle of the city, the park makes for a nice walk or a short picnic, no matter how old or young you are. Parc d'Egmont also incorporates interesting attractions that seem like they're right out of a fairy tale like an old Gothic well and an Orangerie, to name a few.

Boon Brewery

Boon Brewery is known for creating delicious traditional Belgium beer. They craft different types of beers, including lambic where they use fermented fruits to help counter the typical lambic bitterness. The brewery uses modern equipment to create their beloved brews. On select days there are events and guided tours of the brewery.

Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Koekelberg

The construction of the church started in 1905 under the reign of King Léopold II, but was put on hold during the two World Wars and was not completed until 1970. The Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Koekelberg is the fifth largest church in the world. The huge structure (about 100 feet tall) is made of bricks and terracotta, with two towers on each side of the entrance, and an Art Deco edifice.

Ixelles Ponds

Located in the area of Ixelles, the Ixelles Ponds are a set of two ponds that make for a popular gathering place for locals. The water here is not safe for contact and so visitors are not allowed enter the pond. One can walk along the shore and enjoy the peace or enjoy the picturesque Art Nouveau houses nearby. Sit down on a bench and out look out onto the water to admire the waterfowl or enjoy a picturesque walk around the ponds.
