This city is historic and hip, bureaucratic and bizarre. Alluring, but without pretence. The capital of Europe, chocolate, comics and surrealism. Brussels is a special place. It does not take itself too seriously. It’s no surprise, then, that Manneke Pis functions as its mascot.

Brussels, the Heart of Europe

Brussels has a lot to offer. There’s its centre, with the Grand Place’s Gothic town hall and imposing Saint Hubert galleries, home to the best chocolatiers in the country. There are luxurious shops, culturally diverse cultural offering areas, stately districts full of Art Nouveau architecture and green refuges such as Jubelpark. Explore the city’s culinary opulence in countless cafés and restaurants and the cultural opulence of over a hundred museums. Brussels is everything at once.
