The city itself is a blend of old and new
, with 17th century Renaissance buildings lining the same streets as modern steel and glass structures. Well worth a visit is the Grand Place, which is arguably one of the most beautiful squares in Europe.
Another must-do in Brussels is to visit one (or more!) of the many charming pubs throughout the city
to try Belgian beers and moules et frites (mussels served with French fries). Art lovers are well catered for with a range of museums
exhibiting works from the likes of artists such as van Eyck, van Dyck, Rubens and Brueghel throughout the city. And be sure to check the local calendar before travelling – Brussels hosts a wide array of festivals and events throughout the year
which are sure to contribute to a unique and enjoyable stay.The hotel offers a free shuttle from/to the Midi station
(terminal Eurostar and Thalys).
