WELCOME TO BRUSSELS

Belgium’s largest city and the capital of the European Union, Brussels is best known for its diverse array of architectural landmarks, as an administrative center for some of the world’s most powerful international organizations like the EU and NATO, and also for it’s delectable desserts. Belgium is a bilingual city, with all road signs, services, etc. in both French and Dutch. The center of Brussels is home to many museums including the Belgian Comic Strip Center, the Museum of the Army, and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts.

Brussels is also famous for its food. The Belgian waffles, light and sweet, are a local delicacy. The city is also famous for its Lambic, a type of beer that’s fermented differently than ales and lagers. Visit Brussels to try these local cuisines and the other foods that they’re famous for—like chocolate and moules-frites! The city’s position at the center of Europe means that it’s one of the continent’s more accessible destinations. Travel to Brussels and discover all that the city has to offer.
