What is it? The city’s flagship cultural centre with exhibitions, concerts and theatre from around the world.
Why go? The beautiful Victor Horta-designed building is worth visiting even if you’re not interested in any of its hugely varied events. But with recent highlights including a season dedicated to hip-hop, a retrospective of Charlemagne Palestine’s offbeat art, an international film festival and a series of talks with African artists and curators, there’s certain to be something that tickles your fancy. Get in free with a Brussels Card, which includes public transport around the city.
