Today we started with a tour through the city to get to see the sights of Brussels. The tour was very informative and interesting. We visited the Grand Place and got a lot of information about the history of Brussels.
After that, we went to the Chocolateria and there we learned a lot about the ingredients and the origin of the cocoa beans. Then, we got to try the different kinds of chocolate, like white, dark and milk chocolate. After that we were able to buy a lot of locally produced chocolates at good prices.
Right after that we went to the Atomium which we discovered on our own. At first we went up to the highest spot and then we walked through the different levels. In the different balls we found out a lot about the history of it and the reason why it was built.
In the evening we were able to explore the city on our own and got some food at the railway station. It was a good start to the week.
