Brussels, Belgium

Brussels Running Tour

This ~3 mile tour will take you by some of the more interesting sites in Brussels. It’s hard to design a specific route through some of the narrow, cobblestoned streets around the Grand Place, so for this part go early to beat the crowds and explore a bit, or use this route as a general guideline. The main route uses Brussels Park as the anchor point. Head toward St Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral, Belgium’s National Church. The next section skirts Grand Place, with many wonderful old buildings, Royal Theater, Jeanneke-Pis (sister of Manneken Pis), Brussels City Museum, the historic Galeries Royales shopping arcade, heading out to gorgeous Eglise Catherine. Next, run by the curious Manneken Pis (Iconic 17th-century fountain with a bronze statue of small boy, dressed in costume during festivals), to Brussels City Hall and the Museum of Chocolate. The final section runs by Brussels’ main ‘museum area’, with several iconic museums, cultural institutions, and the Royal Palace.
