This attraction provided the best overlook of our trip. As a bonus it provided a lot of cool historical displays. We were surprised it had so few reviews as it was fun as well. This is the last surviving section of city tower/walls.

One of the site seeing attractions we came across and worth seeing in Brussels if you’re around the area. It was a nice looking structure that is also known as a Medieval Gate built in the 14th century. It is worthy of a photo and...More
