A city break in Brussels can be a magical escape, so forget any misconceptions you might have about Belgium being boring. This place is peppered with famous landmarks, making a walk around Belgium’s capital a real treat. There’s the Royal Palace, with its manicured gardens and impressive interior, the unmistakable statue, Manneken Pis, and the Grand Place, lined by historic building and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Brussels, of course, is famous for two very important things – chocolate and beer. You’ll find both in huge amounts here, and there’s no doubt that they lend an extra-special quality to a short break. Walk off those excess calories as you explore the cobbled streets of this superb city, taking in the spires of ancient churches and stopping to savour the atmosphere and the wondrous views in kerbside cafes.
The shopping’s great, there are excellent restaurants serving a diverse range of cuisines, and the nightlife’s got something for everyone. Brussels is buzzing, so why not discover it for yourself?
