In Bilbao there are not residents, there are txikiteros. Txikiteros are names given to those who drink txikitos, small glasses of wine served in the bars.

Perfect locations in Brussels for your Instagram
28.02.2024

There are beautiful cities, there are destinations with a lot to see, and then there is Brussels, which is a mixture of both and which is going to demand the best of your mobile phone battery because you won't stop taking photos and videos.

The capital of Belgium has an incredible and long history that is told, little by little, in each of its many corners and monuments.

It's a difficult task, but where are the best places to take the perfect photo and upload it to Instagram? We're going to try to give you a hand by showing you the best of the best in the magical city of Brussels.

 

The most Instagrammable places in Brussels

Grand Place

If it's not the first stop and the first photo you take in Brussels, it will be the second, because this place is essential. One of the most beautiful squares in Europe, and you can't even imagine it at Christmas.

Immortalise the buildings that make it up, the Guild Houses, the Maison du Roi d'Espagne and the Brussels City Hall are the most important and impressive.

Don't forget to stop by the flower market on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 08:00 to 18:00 for a colourful springtime photo.

 

Galeries Saint Hubert

If the Grand Place is your first photo stop, the Saint Hubert galleries should be your second stop. No arguments, no excuses. You must have photos here.

The King's Gallery, the Queen's Gallery and the Princes' Gallery form the Galeries Saint Hubert complex, one of the first shopping arcades in Europe. Filled with luxury shops, restaurants and chocolatiers, their iron and glass décor with beautiful vaulted ceilings will make your photos the envy of any instagrammer.

 

Manneken Pis

If you come to Brussels, you must have your photo taken with one of the symbols of the city, the pissing boy Manneken Pis. It is a statue about 50 centimetres tall and with a wardrobe better than yours. Do you doubt it? He has more than 600 clothes and outfits that he combines according to the time of year or the festival.

The weak bladder trio is completed by the girl version, Jeanneke Pis, and the sculpture of a dog doing the same in the street, Zinneke Pis.

 

Palace of Justice

For a time, this truly magnificent building, both in terms of its size and its classical beauty, was considered to be the largest in Europe. And no wonder, with its 104 metres in height and more than 26,000 square metres. You read that right.

Its neoclassical elements and dimensions will be the absolute kings of your photos as soon as you stand in front of one of its staircases. It's a real treat.

 

Notre Dame du Sablon Church

One of the most beautiful churches not only in the country but in the world. Its gothic style, which is always very striking, will hypnotise you. But don't think that only the outside is beautiful, inside you will fall in love with its stained glass windows and wooden pulpit.

 

Mont des Arts

We started a dangerous game in Brussels, talking about parks and gardens. They have several and they are all beautiful, even more so when the sun comes out, but we are only going to talk about the two that are most spectacular.

In this case, Mont des Arts, which was created for the Brussels International Exhibition of 1910 and has managed to win the affection of its citizens. Although, however beautiful and well-kept the garden may be, the undisputed king is the panoramic views of the historic centre of Brussels.

 

Brussels Park

Also known as the Royal Park, because it has the incredible Royal Palace in it, it is the true lung of Brussels. This garden has everything you can imagine for a photo shoot of another level; palaces, monuments such as the Vauxhall Kiosk, fountains, gardens, ponds, even a small forest.

 

Parc du Cinquantenaire

If we're talking about parks, we have to give way to what is possibly the best known and largest park in the city, with 30 hectares. Which photo are you going to upload? Without a doubt, the Cinquantenaire Palace with its incredible triumphal arch and its quadriga on top of it.

 

Comic route

The relationship between Brussels and the comic book industry is not new, it is a long-standing, stable and serious one. It has given birth to both authors and legendary characters.

Lose yourself in the charm of its streets on the Comic Strip Route and meet the greats of the genre such as Tintin, Lucky Luke, The Smurfs or Asterix and Obelix.

 

Beers in Brussels

You can't go wrong. Besides comics, Brussels is known for its excellent beer and its chocolate tradition. But one thing at a time. Right now we're going to talk about the many beers on offer and, above all, where you can enjoy them.

To upload a photo of beer, you can either take a photo of yourself on a terrace with the sun in the background, or in the rain, or go to some of the most emblematic beer bars in the city.

If you choose the second option, well done, we recommend the iconic Delirium Café, with its more than two thousand varieties of beers, Poechenellekelder, an impressive place for a stopover, Moeder Lambic for 100% craft beers or La Porte Noire if you want to accompany your beer with some live music.

 

Chocolate

Here we are, and chocolate is a must. Of course, the obligatory stop for lovers of this sweet sin is the Choco Story, a museum that tells the story of chocolate and where you can taste and buy many different varieties.

And, just like with beer, we're going to recommend some places where you should buy chocolate and let the whole world know about it. Don't forget to stop by Pierre Marcolini, Elisabeth, Neuhaus, Godiva and Leonidas, just to mention a few of the best in town.

 

LEGO Discovery Centre

Kids' moment or geek moment, depending on who you take with you on your trip to Brussels. An impressive place for LEGO lovers where you can let your imagination run wild and have fun creating.

 

Atomium

We finish our list with another of the city's symbols, the Atomium. A gigantic representation of an iron crystal, no less than 102 metres high. In one of its domes there is the possibility of eating in a restaurant and it has absolutely marvellous views of the city. A must-see and a must-photograph stop.
