Brussels offers many interesting ideas for kids to have fun. We didn’t spend much time in Brussels, as we travelled to other Belgian cities, but here is a taste of what you can do in Brussels when travelling with kids.
There are many places where children will have great time: a large aqua park called Océade, the architectural symbol of Brussels, Atomium, parks, theatres and museums. So, where did we go? We often walked through the park Parc de Bruxelles, so our daughter played in the playground there. We went to the museum Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique to see the old masters, Pieter Bruegel and Peter Paul Rubens among others (probably more attractive for older children, aged 3+). You can also go to the puppets’ theatre when visiting Brussels; we went to Le Théâtre Royal du Peruchet to see “Three little pigs”. The passion and enthusiasm of the performance was contagious. We loved the performance and the little tour around their puppets’ museum.
Have you visited Brussels with your children? What are your recommendations?
