Day 3: Head north for a stunning panoramic view

If you’re staying close to the Halle Gate, a little trip to this dungeon-cum-museum lets you kick off the day in knights and princesses mode.

Now take tram 92 to Schaerbeek station. You'll travel through a large part of the capital, before boarding Train World, the Belgian railway museum. The stunning scenography provides for a wonderful experience for young and old alike! 

Whether you're starting to feel peckish or your starving, in Schaerbeek you're spoilt for choice. Boentje Café is a coffie house that ticks all the boxes: zero waste, circular economy and even cooperative workshops. It's full of home-made recipes, and the icing on the cake: cakes and biscuits that are to die for. 
Chez Marraine is the burger bar that will make you fall in love with burgers all over again. Here, everything is made with local products, comes from local artisans... and has that special ingredient, love! 

Fancy discovering Europe in an afternoon and without having to pack a suitcase? Then visit Mini Europe your kids will love it! 

And to round off the day in style, there's nothing better than a climb up the Atomium for a breathtaking panoramic view of the city, and a trip to the Planetarium to get lost in the solar system!
