This is a real treat. It was fascinating seeing the house and beautiful garden. The collection of antique books was extraordinary. If you take 81 tram to St. Guidon, it is fairly easy to find.

The Erasmus house is in a historical surrounding and the incredibly cheap ticket gives you also access to the beguinase a few hundred meters away. The collection of books, paintings and furniture in a historical building allows a nice, quick visit. The garden in two...More

Anderlecht ... everybody things about football, but there's a great museum to visit really nearby the soccer field. A 16th century building, now housing the only museum in the world dedicated to the 16th century philosopher Desiderius Erasmus.
