Project Description

Brussels

The capital of the European Union is abuzz with political activity and home to impressive architecture and cobblestones and fountains. A stately yet modest city, Brussels represents the quintessential 21st century European collision of modernity and history. Packed with lively squares and steely skyscrapers, breathtaking cathedrals in the old Town as well as bustling nightclubs, Brussels should enrapture you in no time at all.

Grand Place in Brussels

The centre of the city is the vibrant Grand Place square, pulsating with the energy of tourists, officials, street artists and musicians. The centre of the square is enveloped by a row of striking gilded houses One of the most memorable and beautiful squares in Europe, it contains architectural wonders ranging from the Romanesque Cathedrale St. Michele to the tower of the Hotel de Ville and the Maison du Roi.

The world famous bronze statue of a peeing boy, Manneken Pis, is not only an amusing local sight but a representative of Belgium’s illustrious history. And after visiting the Atomium, make sure you also take a tour around the chocolate boutiques of Brussels, and taste some of the finest chocolates!

Best Time to visit

Brussels has a mini-London weather pattern, therefore if you are visiting prepare for all kinds of weather, and especially rain. Generally, spring and autumn are mild, summer days can be warm and sunny, while winter days can feel chilly. The best time to visit is May and June, with usually warm and pleasant weather for strolls around the city, but hotel prices tend to be high. In autumn, because of the many event happenings of the European Committee, hotel prices get high, therefore it is advised to book in advance.
