Embark on a 2.5-hour free walking tour of Brussels and discover the main sights as you learn about the history of the landmarks accompanied by a professional English-speaking guide.
Brussels Free Walking Tour
Since the capital of Belgium is rather hilly, there are two free guided tours to chose from:
10:30 am Lower City Tour
The Lower City Guided Tour takes places every day of the week at 10:30am. Meet your guide in the heart of Brussels (in the Grand Place) and set off on a 2.5-hour walking tour. Learn about the city’s history, the Belgian monarchy and the importance of the European Institutions as you stroll through the charming cobbled streets of the Old Town. This free tour will focus especially on the “Quartier Marolles”, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Brussels, located between the south railway station and the Palais de Justice. The highlights of this tour include the Manneken Pis, the thriving Anspach Boulevard, the Art Deco buildings on Vieux Marché aux Grains street, De Brouckère square and the beautiful Galeries Royales Saint Hubert, among many other landmarks.
3 pm Upper City Tour
The Upper City Guided Tour departs every day from the Grand Place at 3:00 pm. Commence your free guided tour of Brussels by exploring the Galeries Royales Saint Hubert, a famous arcaded shopping center, and walk into the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula. Explore the capital’s major Roman Catholic church, including the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, accompanied by your professional English-speaking guide. Next, head to the Royal Square, home to the Royal Palace and walk past the charming Musical Instruments Museum, the Magritte Museum and the Palace of Fine Arts. Discover the power of the nobility and the church during the past centuries, concentrating on the Habsburg dynasty and the House of Burgundy. Lastly, wander through the Petit Sablon and the Grand Sablon and admire the world-famous Manneken Pis.
