Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium: Our most recommended tours and activities

Brussels: The Sheroes' Historical Impact Walking Tour

1. Brussels: The Sheroes' Historical Impact Walking Tour

Discover why Belgium has been marked by the presence of women who triumphed in history despite all the inconveniences and obstacles they encountered along the way. Brussels tells of the advancement of female protagonists and their role in the development of the country. Meet in one of the most coveted locations in the European capital from the 12th to the 18th century: the Royal Court Quarter. During the walk, admire the power of the queens to the masses of the Protestant shepherdesses and the Guardians of the Holy Sepulcher. Go down towards the historical center from the Mont des Arts (Mount of Arts). This is a privileged spot in the city for photography and attracts everyone's attention. See the famous Expo 58 Atomium sculpture, a signature of Brussels. See the unmistakable statue of a child peeing shamelessly in one of the oldest fountains in the city. Discover the history of the little girl statue, Jeanneke Pis, half-hidden in the privacy of a small alley, who does the same in full view of prying eyes. Finally, go to the Théâtre La Monnaie, the home of an explosion of revolutionary revolts in the 19th century. Learn about the role of women in conflicts such as Belgian independence and the world wars. Lastly, see Rue Neuve where Laura, Eleanor, and Jenny Marx lived in exile.

Brussels: Famous People City Exploration Game

Discover exciting sights in Brussels and learn about its famous inhabitants by solving challenges and unlocking stories on your phone. See the Maison Du Roi, Hotel Amigo, the Jacques Brel Sculpture, and more, while learning about the Lumiere brothers and other known residents. The city game starts at Maison Du Roi. As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. It will take you between 1-1,5 hours but you should explore at your own pace: simply pause the game and resume when you want from the location where you paused it. Play on your own, in a large group, or in several smaller groups that compete against each other before meeting at the final stop of the game. The game concludes at the Marie Curie Sculpture.

A bit confusing at the beginning, therefore preparation in advance is recommended. Due to the abundance, selection according to focus is necessary.

The Old Masters Museum is a MUST when in Brussels. It was amazing. We spent 3 hours there and could have easily spent more. Loved it.

Inspirational, the transition to impressionism and pointillism and abstraction
