Brussels : Yours to discover !

Brussels is more than a 1000 years old. Capital of the Kingdom of Belgium, headquarters of the French and the Flemish Communities, Brussels also has an important international vocation. As the European Capital, the city is home to the European Commission and to the Council of ministers of the European Union. Brussels is also known as home to NATO as well as a wealth of international trade and finance companies. It is a cosmopolitan city where many different cultures live together and where different languages can be heard on each street. This liveliness and international flair is, of course, intimately related to its role as a crossroads for all of Europe.


The same variety and contrast can also be found in the different architectural styles that can be found in Brussels, the former capital of the medieval Duchy of Brabant. Gothic cathedrals and churches are next to gracious classical facades like the buildings around the Royal Square, or beautiful Art Nouveau and Art Deco houses.

The heart of Brussels and the place to start getting to know the city is the Grand'Place. This historic market square with its splendid guild houses and the impressive Gothic beauty of the Town Hall, is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful town squares in Europe.

 

Varied and compact city, Brussels has much to offer for lovers of art, history, typical atmosphere and culinary excellence. Just try some of our 350 delicious beers and do not forget to bring back home some of our famous chocolates !
