Combine a politics tour to Belgium’s capital and main base for the European Parliament with medieval Bruges.
Built in 1958 for the World Fair in Brussels as a glimpse of the future, the structure looks a little like a K’Nex model with a series of ‘balls’ connected by tubes. Inside, a lift takes you to the top sphere, which affords wonderful panoramic views of Brussels. On the way down (by escalator) there are a number of exhibitions documenting how the dome was constructed.
Planetarium de Bruxelles, also known as the Planetarium of the Royal Observatory of Belgium, is one of the largest in Europe and can accommodate up to 350 spectators. The main attraction is the dome’s screen, where the sky is identically reproduced through a special projector, built by the Carl Zeiss company. It consists of 119 cells that can project the sun, moon, planets, the Milky Way and more than 8,500 stars.
Euro Space Centre
Situated in the Belgian Ardennes, approximately one-and-a-half-hours from Brussels, this exciting venue arranges workshops, training on simulators, astronaut camps and spectacular exhibitions. Students have hands-on experience of, among other things, building and launching a micro-rocket, integration of a satellite, a multi-access rotating chair, a moonwalk chair and a space mission simulation. We can either arrange a one-day visit for groups based in Brussels or full board accommodation at the Space Centre.
All tours can be tailor-made to suit your needs. Some groups have specific sites that they wish to visit including graves, where they may wish to lay a wreath. Others like to combine a history tour with some leisure time, such as a day visit to Bruges, a visit to Bellewaerde Theme Park outside Ypres or add on a visit to Disneyland® Paris.Download and print borchure page
