Hustle, Bustle and Beer in Brussels

Delicious chocolate, superb beer, UNESCO sites and infectious culture – all experiences of Brussels holidays, transporting you to the fantastically-alluring Belgian capital. The capital city of Belgium is one Europe’s most significant cities, considered the de facto capital of the EU, at the centre and crossroads of the continent’s culture of both the North and South. Besides its pivotal stature within Europe, the city itself holds equal charm and character, experienced in the form of top museums, stunning architecture and wonderful culinary delights.

The city’s Grand Place epitomises this overall character, presenting a wide-open cobbled Medieval market square lined by stunning guild houses and the city’s iconic Town Hall. Lined by cafes, bars and restaurants, this is the perfect pace to tuck into some of Belgium’s delectably delights, whether it’s a steaming cauldron of moules et frites, a sweet and tasty waffle, or a monumental glass of beer – all essential elements of all holidays to Brussels.

Culture of Europe

Nothing spells European culture like a statue known as The Pissing Boy. In Brussels this famed statue has become one of the most photographed icons in the city, which is either heroic or worrying considering the amount of picturesque settings found in the capital. If you’re worried that all you’ll have to show for your holidays in Brussels is a dozen or so pictures of this statue on your camera, save your blushes by grabbing a snap or two of the imposing Basilica of the Sacred Heart and the Palais de Justice, before ducking into the engaging and informative City Museum for a history lesson.

If you’ve come with the family, kids will love paying a visit to the Mini Europe – a miniature park featuring over 80 cities and 350 buildings scaled down to an accessible size, allowing you a whistle-stop tour of some of the continent’s finest sites. If you’re eager for a little more adventure, there are a number of easy and exciting daytrips that can be taken from Brussels. One of the finest is to the medieval beauty that is Bruges, just under an hour from the capital, while the big city of Antwerp will display even more cultural heritage – and great beer. Brussels’ hotels will keep you comfortable throughout your Brussels holidays - something which may be essential the morning after a Belgian beer overload.
