Brussel (Brussels)

The whole world comes together in Brussels, with a different continent around every corner, from the exotic Matonge quarter to the stately elegance of the European institutions. The capital of Belgium has a vibrancy like no other and the formality of its ‘hard’ metropolitan structure is softened by the authentic, working-class ambiance of its more popular districts. In the shadow of the majestic Market Square, Manneken-Pis is permanently peeing. This multifaceted city manages to reconcile the chic Sablon district with trendy Saint-Gilles or the popular Vossenplein. Royalty watchers can set course for Paleizenplein. Culture lovers can indulge in the numerous art galleries and exhibitions, or feast their eyes on over a hundred museums, such as the MIMA, the Magritte Museum, the BOZAR or the many Art Nouveau gems. Foodies can flock to the countless cool rooftops, cosy brasseries or gourmet restaurants. Vintage aficionados can conquer the Atomium or go exploring in the Kanaalwijk district. And in the city where both Tintin and the Smurfs were born, comic lovers will find more than 50 comic-strip walls and a renowned Comics Museum.

There is a direct train connection between Bruges and Brussels-Central(journey time: ca. 1.00-1.15 hours).
