Why fly to Brussels?


Brussels is a place of power and beauty. It is the capital of Europe with the headquarters of NATO and the European Union located within its borders.

The city is a wonderful mix of Spanish, Flemish, German, Italian, English and Walloon. This unique mix has made for a thoroughly interesting city and culture. In fact check out mini Europe, which is a permanent fixture in the city and is made up of iconic structures that represent major European cities like London's Big Ben.

The architecture in Brussels has several influences and includes some of the most beautiful and interesting pieces in Europe. Head to the Grand Square and start your architectural exploration. The square itself is quite beautiful to see. Galleries and museums provide a wealth of cultural information inside and sheer beauty on the outside like the Magritte Museum and the Musee Royaux Des Beaux-Arts.

One of the most well known pieces of artist in the city is of a little boy urinating called Mannekan Pis, which illustrates the city's whimsical view of art and design. And which also explains why the city also hosts the Comic Strip Museum. The museum itself is housed in a building designed by Victor Horta in the beginning of the 20th century.

For a piece of science meets art check out what an iron crystal would look like, magnified billions of times at the the Atomium. The monument was erected for the 1958 World Fair and is one of the city's most iconic structures.

Brussels is a world class city and every little pebble, stone or piece of iron sings of it.
