Curated for you
Belgians have been avid brewers since the Middle Ages. Today there are more than 100 brewers in this country that still produce a variety of beers. From regular lager and raspberry beer to self-fermenting lambic, there is something for everyone. The centre of Brussels is home to beer museums, a brewery and plenty of beer cafés so you don't have to leave town for a good time.
ARTS & CULTURE
The Atomium, which has been a fixture of the Brussels skyline since it was constructed for the World’s Fair in 1958, was originally intended as a temporary building. The 9 gigantic stainless steel spheres together form an enormous iron crystal. After the World’s Fair, the Belgians had become so fond of the bizarre structure that it was never taken down. The Atomium has since come to symbolise Brussels, as the Eiffel Tower does Paris.
ARTS & CULTURE
The top attraction in Brussels is the Grand Place, or Grote Markt. This centrally located square is renowned for its rich history. Surrounded by the City Hall, the ‘Broodhuis’ and numerous guildhalls, it is not surprising that UNESCO added the Grand Place to its list of World Heritage Sites in 1998.
