Brussels: Mini Europe

How was your holidays, everyone? I hope you had a fabulous time with your loved ones.

Moving on, I'd like to finish posting about our last trip. It's already 2012 and I'm not finished yet. LOL! I still have Dubai and a few other tips to write about.

Anyway, here's our trip to Mini-Europe in Brussels.

Mini-Europe is just at the foot of Atomium, so we bought a combi ticket: Mini-Europe + Atomium for €22,70/adult and €14,90/kids (less than 12yo).

Mini-Europe showcases Europe's famous landmarks through miniature models. For a whirlwind tour of Europe and for the kids, this park is recommended. My son loved looking at the miniature models. Some of the models have interactive capacity or working models making it a more fun discovery for the kids and the kids at heart.

Here are some of our pictures.

There are approximately 300 models inside the park. Unfortunately I couldn't name all of them and hubby wasn't able to take pictures of everything. I also wasn't able to see and explore all the models as I was cold and needed a coffee in my hand. So I left my boys in the park while I went to look for a coffeeshop, which is just right before you exit the park. Perfect!
