Brussels – a quirky, offbeat capital

Brussels is the capital of Belgium, the capital of Europe, and a city of culture and gentle hedonism. Surrounding the city’s major set piece, the Grand'Place, a visitor to Brussels will find the finest restaurants, endearing bars, some of the world’s finest works of art, and astounding architecture. However, the vibe here is laissez-faire; so relax, go with the flow and let Brussels slowly soak into your spirit.

Musee royal de l'Armee et d'Histoire militaire

Royal military museum of Belgium

Stay Editor's Note

The Musee royal de l'Armee et d'Histoire militaire isn’t a well-frequented museum, but it’s full of important and impacting artifacts nonetheless. An extensive exhibit of armor, uniforms and weapons from different Belgian campaigns are on display here, rolling through the history of Belgium from a military perspective.

As Belgium is not one of the world’s greatest military powers, you’ll find the Musee royal de l'Armee et d'Histoire militaire less crowded than other local attractions. However, military and history buffs will enjoy the displays such as the aircraft hangar from WWI and WWII and weapons, among other things kept in this fine but extensive collection.
