    Fun Way to Kill Some Time
    First off, this area is obviously a tourist trap. Be prepared for a lot of people. Aside from that we enjoyed our time here. It's a fun way to kill an hour or two while getting some clever photos. There are a lot of families and kids, but there is a route that everyone has to follow so things flow smoothly. There is so much to see and a lot of detail. There are a few interactive features such as rotating a crank to race miniature bicyclists or yelling into a microphone to hear back "Oh la". Most of these features were geared towards kids. There's a restaurant with bathrooms and a gift shop before you exit. Overall a fun way to kill some time but very geared towards families and kids. Fun tip, you can take some great shots of the Atomium from Mini Europe.

    Not accurate
    It started out nice but... We felt like Romania's representation was very poor. Only one small building that isn't exactly an icon, not to mention that the national anthem didn't work, while all the others worked. Also, when exiting, we noticed that on the wall where all the languages were showcased the abbreviation used for Romania was "RON" while all the others had the country abbreviation. "RON"'s our currency, get your facts straight... Use "ROM" or "ROU"... I hope they are all some honest mistakes, but we felt like there's a bit of hidden xenophobia in this "Mini-Europe".

    Really nice experience!
    We had a great time. The attention to detail is impressive and the interactive bits were really fun, so it’s not the usual museum experience. Every country has a button you can press to hear their national anthem, and some of them have additional buttons that trigger interesting mechanisms. It was really fun for the children as well, I noticed it kept them entertained and interested the whole time. It’s a fair price for what you get. I think everyone should go at least once, regardless of their age.

    Good attraction, not so good staff.
    Had a nice time- took us just over an hour to go around the place. We found it very interesting and plenty of models to see. However, 2 of the staff at the end of the attraction were very pushy in trying to sell us a picture that we did not want, running up to us with the picture and shouting. The young girl by the photo desk looked at us with pure disgust and rolled her eyes at us after we said multiple times that we did not want a photo. After a good time going around the place this put a bit of a downer on it.

    A must do
    This was one of the highlights of my stay in Brussels and I’d recommend you combine it with a visit to the nearby Atomium. As the name would suggest, the Mini-Europe park features intricate miniature models of famous landmarks from most EU member states. The models are very well done. As a Brit, I found it particularly amusing how they’d installed a customs border by the UK section to reflect the realities of Brexit.

    Not just a model village
    Not just a model village but an an education too. You can easily spend 2 hours wandering around the exhibit as easy model has little extra details and interactive elements. Only slight disappointment was the restaurant would probably have given that a miss in hindsight.

    Really fun and engaging experience.
    A really fun, engaging and educational experience at Mini Europe. There are so many models of Europe’s finest monuments and buildings, which contain so much real life detail. The cafe on site is good for lunch and the information booklet provided is really informative. Would highly recommend.

    Attraction itself is fine, Restaurant avoid.
    Attraction was fine, models were perfectly ok. Had student rate combi with the Atomium. Avoid the restaurant at all costs. Deep fried burger pattie and sub par chips for the meal deal price. It was a slow day, but no excuse for how the burger was done (inedible crust from the fryer). Chips were edible. Food at 'major' attractions in the UK hasn't been this bad since the 90s.

    Going Around Europe in a few hours
    Can you imagine taking a photo in front of Big Ben and 10 minutes later in front of Eifel Tower? If you visit mini Europe, you will have the chance to "travel" around Europe just in 2-3 hours. Very impressive and a nice activity for children

    Touring Europe as a Gulliver's giant
    Mini Europe is an attraction we visit regularly when we make the trip to the homeland. During the pandemic it was said to have closed, but to our relief that wasn't the case. This venue provides an array of miniatures from various European countries, such as the Paris and London highlights, windmills from Kinderdijk in the Netherlands, Dover Castle, Torre de Belem from Lisbon and many many more. Being interested in crafts and architecture, we always enjoys these meticulously conceived models. Visiting the site makes for a few hours of fun filled information.

This kind of an open air museum which depicts all the major highlights of eavh country of the European Union. You can learn a lot about these countries. There are interactive exhibits where you can push a button or something to enable something. Must admere the concept and the work they have put on. But it kind of get boring after passing through few countries. It takes around 2 hours to complete the tour. Really good for kids. But if you are not in to museum stuff then this is not for you. Ticket is 17 euros. If you are visiting the atomium as well, then there's a combined ticket for a lesser price.

Worth purchasing a combination ticket for Mini Europe and the Atomium, as this saves you several Euros per person. My husband and I enjoyed a couple of hours here. It was a lovely walk around, admiring landmarks we were already aware of or had visited, or learning about places we were less familiar with. We appreciated the time and effort that must have gone into creating all of the models and respective mechanisms. There were several buttons to push going round, which did interesting things to enhance the displays. You also get a booklet with some additional information. Restaurant seemed closed when we arrived after completing our walk round the attraction at around 4:20pm - not sure why when the place was open until 6pm? Shop was a bit lacklustre - the staff in there didn’t even acknowledge our existence and continued to chat between themselves. Overall, an enjoyable and interesting visit. Would recommend!

We had a fun afternoon here with our 7 year old. The guy at the ticket booth was super helpful and saved us money explaining we wouldn’t fit the atomium in with only an hour and half left in the day. The Halloween extras and fun and made it extra Humorous!

The place is really awesome but spoiled because of a very terrible experience with the staff managing the photographs at the end of the tour. Very terrible as their card machine did not work for my girlfriend’s card but worked in the gift shop when we used it 3 minutes before. Staff made a very condescending and racist remarks saying that their machine do not accept our “(philippines) card”. Now I commented back saying that our race/where we’re from does not matter and that this Revolut card is actually a UK card where we live. Then he proceeded to say random phrases in tagalog that first of all did not make any sense and secondly inappropriate to diffuse the situation. Where we are from and random places in Philippines as jokes is not the way to treat your customers who just had a terrible experience with your staff. Imagine me saying random french/belgian phrases to people in Brussels and act as if we are close. I was gonna ask for the manager but i do not think they understood what I was trying to explain in the first place

We really enjoyed this, we stayed a lot longer than I thought as there was a lot to see. Lots of buttons to press (e.g. to play national anthems, or make the little model people move. It was nice that things worked as well, I think it is all to easy to let things break and not get fixed, but it was well maintained. There is a cafe ( mostly burgers and chips). The only feedback I would give to them is it would have been good if the guide book was in the order of the models, as you are constantly flicking back and forwards, but that’s a minor point.

Mini Europe is located near to the Atomium on the outskirts of Brussels. It is a large sit with very impressive models of famous buildings and sites from all around the EU. They still have the British models as they formed quite a big part of the site but, amusingly, the have customs signs saying you are leaving the EU when you enter the British area. There is even a model of Boris Johnson campaigning for Brexit. This is very much worth a visit and can easily be combined with the Atomium. There is a cafe which offers a limited selection of very basic food of not great quality.

Very disappointing, I was here 15 years ago and thought it was far better. It seems pretty run down, many of the exhibits were either broken or out of order. Most of the "buttons to press" either did nothing or did sometjing very lame.

I enjoyed my afternoon at Mini-Europe. It is reasonably priced when considering the discount when buying with another attraction, like the Atomium in our case. The food was decent and not too expensive for a tourist attraction like this. I enjoyed the models of the landmarks in Europe and would definitely recommend a visit and would return if in Brussels.

We used the combined Atomium, Mini Europe and Design Museum ticket for this attraction.
Mini Europe is fairly small but has lots to see with some interactive elements. It was a very hot day and there was very little shade. Enjoyed our visit but pleased we used the combined ticket as individual pricing seems overpriced.

Mini Europe is slightly wrong as a name as it "only" includes all EU countries and former member states. The choice of certain country objects to represent them is sometimes a bit strange; for example as an Austrian I could easily think of 10 more iconic buildings than the one chosen. But this also makes it somewhat interesting. The labelling and descriptions could be a bit better, but it's nice thst they added little people, so it gives you a hint of relation for how big the buildings in real life are.
