Experience an utterly unique, diverse and enchanting city break when you visit a secret hotel in Brussels, home to rich cultural traditions, historic curiosities and fine chocolate. The city is a melting pot in every sense, playing a significant role on the global stage as one of the most international cities in the world, and an especially important role for European politics as the capital of the European Union. It sits comfortably between two distinct cultures; the Germanic to the North and the Romance to the South, but still manages to maintain its own assured character and unique charm. It is this charm that continues to attract such a large number of dignitaries, diplomats, expatriates and institutions to make a home here, as well as the countless number of annual visitors.
A long and complex history, dating back to the 11th century, has meant that Brussels has seen a great deal of evolution and expansion throughout the ages, but it is proud to still have a few of the original monuments, buildings and streets remaining. There are several fantastic museums paying tribute to the past and also some that deal with contemporary issues and interests, such as the Belgian Comic Strip Centre and the Musee du Cinema-Filmmuseum. On top of the museums, there is a wide range of other activities suiting every taste, whether you are travelling with young children, for a romantic getaway or on a business trip. The architecture throughout Brussels is truly breath-taking and makes for many postcard-perfect photographs. The buildings themselves are often occupied by noteworthy institutions such as galleries, opera houses or government edifices and are well worth a visit.
For a breath of fresh air, visit one of the city’s green open spaces that are scattered around the capital and filled with statues, fountains, lakes and immaculate flower gardens. These are a great place to bring the kids and allow them to run around and play ball games while you enjoy the sound of birds chirping, a home-made picnic and a good book. If nature and animals is your thing, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Brussels Zoo in nearby Planckendael, where you can marvel at animals from around the world in spacious, geographically-organised enclosures.
