This great statue has become the symbol of Brussels as well as the most visited landmark in the city. The bronze fountain features a naked little boy nicknamed "Brussel's Oldest Citizen", but you'll come to find that the little fellow is not in fact always naked. The locals dress him while celebrating many events of the year and he has over 900 costumes that visitors can view at the City Museum. This funny statue can be found just a few streets from the Grand Place and you'll surely want to take a picture when you find it!
One of most popular places in Brussels, the Cinquantenaire Park is a large public park close to the European Quarter and also a great place to take pictures! The park was built in 1880 for the 50th anniversary of the independence of Belgium and hosts a lovely set of gardens, monuments and museums along with various activities throughout the year like concerts and certain events. The star of the park is a triumphal arch with three arches, considered Brussels' Arc de Triomphe. You can also enjoy the view over the city from the top for a small charge of 5€.
Bois de la Cambre
This is one of the best parks in Brussels! The park was annexed to the city in 1842 and is part of the old Forest of Soignes. It has playgrounds, a ‘pocket’ theatre, a roller-skating rink, a greenhouse and a few other things to see! You can spend a whole afternoon here watching the dogs play, have a picnic or just enjoy the sun sitting on a bench. On the weekends you can even take the €1 ferry to reach the island and enjoy a nice lunch at the historic Chalet Robinson café-restaurant. It is a must see if you visit Brussels.
