A glamorous capital

In the heart of Europe, the charming royal capital is worth seeing, for those who know where to look.

From the modernity of the European district to the colourful charm of the Marolles and its antique shops, Brussels is undoubtedly a city of contrasts.

Let’s face it, only Belgians can both elevate the Manneken-Pis (literally, the “little man who pees”) to the status of an icon, pay homage to Magritte, design a giant chocolate museum and boast of having one of the most beautiful squares in the world: the Grand Place.

In this city, gourmets will always find something to satisfy their appetite. Gourmet restaurants, certainly, but also chip stands (Belgian food trucks), famous chocolate shops and the delicious waffles of Brussels (comparable to those of Liege, also serviced by Thalys).
