If you’re thinking of traveling to Belgium and spend a nice time in Brussels, I suggest you the Brussels Card!
I found out about this brilliant card when I was doing my homework on what to see, museums to visit and transportation in the belgian capital city. It looked like the most reliable option for someone who was spending a week in the city.

I bought the 48 hours Brussels Card because I was going to spend some of my vacation days traveling across Luxembourg and the Netherlands, but the next time I go back I’ll be buying the 72 hours one and visit all the museums I didn’t have a chance to visit.
My favorite museum was definitely the Museum of Natural Sciences. If you really love chocolate I suggest visiting the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate, where you get to eat chocolate for free!
