About Brussels

While Brussels may be important due to its role as center of the European Union, beer aficionados and chocoholics might wish to differ as to Brussels' main attraction. With its location a mix of Romance- and Germanic-speaking folks, Brussels is at the bilingual crossroads of the Flemish north and French south. While the city has been overshadowed by its more flamboyant neighboring capitals, the ancient streets, outdoor cafes and Grand Place square, with its statuesque buildings best seen illuminated at night, woo visitors who like a quieter pace. Art lovers would enjoy the Musées Royaux does Beaux Arts de Belgique, which houses masterpieces from Pieter Bruegel, van Dyck and Rubens; Autoworld, with vehicles dating to the dawn of the combustion age; and the Musical Instruments Museum, with its 1500 international and historical pieces. A fantastic landmark to see and eat dinner on is the Atomium, a massive structure made of gigantic spheres and connecting rods. Over a dozen city center hotel means you're never too far from the action.
