  • We're in the very heart of Brussels in Grand Place. This is a square with a lot of history.

  • It's hard to believe now but people have been beheaded here and burned to death.

  • Most of the buildings were also destroyed during war.

  • Luckily though, these days it hosts more peaceful events and gatherings. It's also a UNESCO world

  • heritage site and is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the

  • world.

  • so, stroll around, explore the cafes and souvenir stores

  • and don't be afraid of this woman in the window who may suddenly start to move.

  • legend has it that touching the statue will bring you good luck. Most

  • likely it will just bring some kind of disease,

  • and you can often see tourist staring at it wondering whether they should

  • or shouldn't touch it.

  • But in the end, they always do.

  • And we won't tell them that this is not even the real statue. Actually it's in for conservation right now. So probably it won't bring any luck at all.

  • And of course, Brusselss is known for its famous waffles

  • So Claire's here to demonstrate

  • a Belgian waffle for us.

  • I got mine with cassonade,

  • which is brown sugar.

  • and I have a nice little utensil with which to eat it.

  • I might just use my hands.

  • The fork is better when you have

  • a lot of toppings.

  • like fruits and whipped cream. Let's give it a try....Let's see.

  • Mm. Very good. A nice way to warm up on a cold

  • Belgian day. The making of the waffles.... If you need a place to put out your cigarette, Just find the nearest waffle.

  • Here he is, everyone comes looking for him.

  • All over Brussels, all the tourists have been asking if I know where to find him.

  • And here we are. But it's not quite what most people are expecting

  • after all the hype.

  • This is the Manneken Pis.

  • there are all kinds of legends that have come about to try to explain his

  • existence but one thing's for sure - he's become a symbol of Brussels and

  • represents Belgian humor. And by the way, he has over eight hundred different

  • outfits he wears on special occasions. All the tourists come, take their picture

  • with him and they say, It's very small.

  • Little boy.

  • I don't know, it's something strange.

  • I thought it would be bigger -

  • not too small.

  • About the legend I don't know.

  • Maybe he tried to stop a fire or something like that?

  • Maybe it means relaxation.

  • When you

  • When you want to pee a lot and you have a pain

  • here

  • and you find a bathroom it's like

  • you are ohh you feel relaxed. I really need to pee and this Mannneken

  • is not helping.

  • The sound of the steady trickle of water is killing me!

  • Okay, let's take her to a toilet.

  • Some bars in Brussels have maintained an older design.

  • Exhibit A. The chain must be pulled in order to flush the toilet.

  • Another great thing about Brussels is the cafes you can go to when you get

  • tired.

  • This one's called Les gens que j'aime and it's very close to Grand Place and as you

  • can see, the couches

  • are very comfortable.

  • let's take the next in town to explode vessels lightnings

  • Let's take the metro now to explore Brussels by night.

  • The Brussels metro may not be the most beautiful, but you can hear all kinds of music from weird pop sounds during the day to classical at night.

  • So, here we are in Place Ste-Catherine and as you can see, behind me is one of the most

  • impressive churches in Brussels. An interesting fact is that this square used to be a fish

  • market.

  • Let's move on to explore the nightlife.

  • I'm now on Rue Haute, which is a very popular hangout on Sundays.

  • It has a lot of interior design stores, coffee houses and even live music.

  • Ok,

  • let's head to the Jeu de Balle market,

  • where you can find absolutely

  • anything.

  • dancer

  • You must drink the juice, madam.

  • I got this beautiful um,

  • how do you call it? Like a holder for

  • magazines and so on.

  • And I am using it for my flat because we always have a lot of newspapers around

  • and I'm going to put it in the corridor and put the newspapers inside.

  • And I'm super happy about it. There's a lot of super nice stuff. Ya!

  • I got a warm hat because it's getting incredibly cold in Brussels. So, well-protected now.

  • One of the reasons Brussels is such an international city is thanks to its

  • EU quarter.

  • Here you'll find Europe's main institutions including the Commission, the Parliament

  • and the Council.

  • There's an EU summit going on today so we're not allowed any closer to the

  • buildings.

  • And as you can see, there are police and some barricades,

  • a lot of sirens.

  • there's also a lot of political action going on in and Baltic farmers

  • have been protesting.

  • Just another day in Brussels' EU quarter.

  • After all the commotion at the EU I'm now relaxing in Parc Leopold.

  • And there you have it, that's a glimpse of Brussels.

  • Of course, there's a lot more I could show you, a lot more people we could meet

  • but you'll just have to come and see for yourself.

  • I hope you enjoyed the tour. See you next time!

We're in the very heart of Brussels in Grand Place. This is a square with a lot of history.
