Brussels – Bruparck and Atomium (Heysel)

    Bruparck – Kick back and relax in Bruparck, with something for everyone in the family.
Mini-Europe - Brussels
    Mini Europe – This is a fun introduction to Europe, miniature famous landmarks from countries throughout Europe – canals of Amsterdam, Big Ben in London, the Eiffel Tower, windmills of Spain, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, and more. Plus, jumbo ferries that go, trains zooming around, steer your own radio controlled boat through the miniature waterways of Europe.
      Oceade – On a hot day, bring your swim suits and relax in the Oceade water park – rushing water slides, water fun house, kiddie and baby slides, jacuzzi, inner tubes and splash pool.
      Carousel – Little ones will enjoy the old-fashioned carousel and nice big play place for toddlers.
      Kinepolis – If the weather is rainy, there's an IMAX cinema.
      The Village – Food is available, both sit-down restaurants and snack bars.
Atomium - Brussels
  Atomium – The Atominum was built in 1958 for the World Fair in Brussels. Today it's a bit frayed around the edges, but the Atomium is an interesting glimpse of the "future" 50 years ago. And the structure itself is like some giant tinker toy or k'nex creation.
    Inside the Atomium, an elevator takes you up to the top "ball" for a panorama of Brussels – all the red-roofed buildings look like miniatures. As you descend on escalators, there are exhibits, and don't miss the movie documenting the construction of the dome – guys are using hand wrenches to tighten nuts.
    Parc d'Osseghem, Parc de Laeken – Right next to the Atomium is a large grassy park, green and cool, with an artificial lake, benches and plenty of room to run around. Bring sandwiches and have a picnic.
      Tip: Take the metro out to Atomium and Bruparck. It's an easy ride and Bruparck is right next to the metro, the Atomium is a little further.
