Brussels – a quirky, offbeat capital

Brussels is not only the capital of Belgium, but also the capital of Europe and a city of culture and gentle hedonism. Surrounding the city’s major set piece, the Grand'Place, a visitor to Brussels will find the finest restaurants, endearing bars, and some of the world’s finest works of art and astounding architecture. The vibe here is laissez-faire; so relax, go with the flow, and let Brussels slowly soak into your spirit.
