Overview

Brussels, the capital of Europe and Belgium

At the heart of Europe, Brussels, the capital of Flanders, provides an excellent base to explore this charming region – and beyond. Flanders is dotted with historical cities that are teeming with history and atmosphere. These Flemish cities exhibit their authentic charm with cobblestone streets, beguinages, pedestrian shopping streets, cathedrals and internationally renowned art. Brussels is easily accessible by train from Paris (1h22 trip), Amsterdam (1h13 trip) and London (2h10 trip).

About Benelux


Brussels is so much more than a suspiciously boring political and administrative centre. The capital of Flanders, and the de facto capital of Europe, is a mosaic of languages, cultures and traditions, hosts over eighty museums, numerous tourist attractions, a vibrant nightlife, countless restaurants and endless shopping opportunities. The starting point for any visit to Brussels is the Grand Place, so often described as the most beautiful square in the world. A brief stroll away and on your way to admire Manneken Pis, a miniscule statue with a larger-than-life reputation, you’ll notice many facades adorned with striking comic frescos. Indeed, this too is Brussels: comic strip walls, comic strip shops and even a comic strip museum... Surreal!

What better way to enjoy life than watching the world go by as you sample one of the hundreds of local beers served at a lively café terrace, or to indulge in some of the local specialties at the many gastronomic restaurants?

Shopping lovers have a broad variety of choice in Brussels. The Rue Neuve and its brands, the Sablon and its antiques, the Place du Jeu de Balle and its flea market as well as the Avenue de la Toison d’Or and its luxury goods, are prescribed!
