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.

Museum of Ixelles Editors' Note

Musee des Beaux-Arts d'Ixelles was the result of necessity, based on the large donation of artwork from the painter and collector Edmond De Pratere. The intent was to create a public environment for accessing and appreciating the famous painter’s portfolio and collection.

The ongoing support of Musee des Beaux-Arts d'Ixelles stands as an example of how dedicated the Belgian people are to the preservation of their culture. Many significant collections have been exhibited here, and the museum has helped encourage several emerging artists into a career of their own.
