City History & Culture

Start with a stroll around the magnificent Grand Place – one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. Deservedly regarded as one of the world’s gastronomic capitals, discover for yourself Brussels’ first-class cuisine in the restaurants and sample the famous beers and chocolates. Brussels makes a great short break choice at any time of year.

The European Parliament has found an ideal home in Brussels. This inland capital city of Belgium is a multi-cultural and multi-lingual city at the very heart of Europe. Indeed, it claims with some justification to be the ‘Capital of Europe’.

The image of the city suffers abroad, due to its very diversity, as well as the self-effacing nature of its quirky inhabitants, too modest to blow their own trumpet. Brussels has no symbol to rival the Eiffel Tower, aside from the tiny but famed Manneken-Pis, a statuette of a urinating boy.

The first visit to Brussels, uncoloured by expectations, is therefore all the more rewarding. Narrow cobbled streets open suddenly into the breathtaking Grand-Place, with its ornate guild houses, impressive Town Hall and buzzing atmosphere. It would be difficult to find a more beautiful square in the whole of Europe.

With a pleasant temperate climate – warm summers and mild winters – and a host of sights and delights to entertain, Brussels offers far more than just beer and chocolate (although excelling in both).

Some of Brussels’ most opulent buildings and key attractions are clustered around the centrally located Parc de Bruxelles. The most important of Belgium’s museum complexes is located close to Place Royal. It boasts two rich museums, their collections ranging from the 14th century to the modern day. Brussels’ classic souvenir is chocolate. Fresh creamy pralines are for sale at Wittamer, Place du Grand-Sablon, who have had almost a century to perfect their recipes.

Every day is market day in the different parts of Brussels. Among the best of these is the flower market at Grand-Place, also the site of the Sunday morning bird market. Antiques are sold at the market on Place du Grand-Sablon, while the flea market at Place du Jeu de Balle is at its best on weekend mornings.
