If you have the impression that Brussels is grey and staid, you are in for a surprise. The Belgian and EU capital was at the core of the Surrealist movement and today is plush with the harmony of Art Nouveau. Then there are the indulgences no-one can resist – a seemingly endless supply of delicious seafood, hot waffles, beer, and sumptuous chocolate.
It’s difficult to say which part of the city is more captivating, the broad boulevards, stately museums and mansions of the Upper town, or the atmospheric Lower Town, with its labyrinthine streets lined with quirky restaurants, bars and comic book stores. Open your eyes to the kaleidoscope of music, style, culture, food and history that makes Brussels so vibrant and captivating.
