Brussels is a vibrant, multicultural and multilingual city in the heart of Europe. Befitting its role as capital of the European Union, it sits at the crossroads of several nations and cultures. Although it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities worldwide, with residents from 184 countries, it retains a unique distinct culture of its own, steeped in 1000 years of history.

Whether you are into local gastronomy, pub life, art or architecture, Brussels offers it all in spades and temperate climate that makes it ideal to enjoy all year long.

Eager to explore beyond the city limits? Brussels is surrounded by a string of beautiful towns such as Bruges, Ghent and Antwerp. Due to its central location and ease of accessibility, it is only a short train ride away from major European hubs such as Paris, London, Amsterdam and Cologne.
