Have a look at the city of Brussels

A note on Brussels

Brussels needs no introduction. It is the 2nd most cosmopolitan city in the world, with 180 nationalities and 108 languages spoken. It is also Europe’s decision-making capital: Brussels houses the European Commission, the European Parliament and the headquarters of Nato.


An absolute must-see is the Grand-Place, a square that is considered the most beautiful in the world. The Grand-Place houses the Town Hall, which to the present day is the workplace of the mayor and most of their aldermen. It also is the place to be for festivities: concerts, folklore events, the famous Christmas tree in winter, the flower carpet in the summer,…


And there is so much more to see: Manneken Pis, the small mascot of Brussels, the Atomium with its 9 balls representing an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times and built to celebrate scientific discoveries and breakthroughs, the Museum of Natural Sciences housing Europe's largest dinosaur gallery, the Marolles district, with its traditional cafés, trendy bars and daily flea market, the Royal Museums of Fine Arts, and so much more.

Brussels is also an ideal destination to experience a sustainable brand of tourism. The Brussels-Capital Region is a pioneer of sustainable and responsible tourism, with an offer that’s still growing every day. It offers eco-labelled accommodation, conscious restaurants, ethical shops and environmentally-friendly activities, the capital is loved by tourists looking for a more ecological way to discover it.
