Indulge in Brussels

Pocket

Strolling through the streets of Brussels, you are greeted by the sweet waft of chocolate, as every waffle shop in the city temps you in with a different concoction. Decadent creations topped with whipped cream and strawberries, Brussels really is a city of luxury. A place devoted to indulgence, confectioneries and pommes frites, itโ€™s hard not to fall in love with this heart of the European Union. However, as one of the most underrated cities in Europe, Brussels offers far more than just chocolate and beer. Rich in culture, it is a melting hot pot of French and Dutch influence with a wide range of museums, theatres and walking routes paying tribute to Franco-Belgian comics and art.

Smaller than its European counterparts, this charming city more than makes up for it in vibrancy and warmth, with various festivities breathing life into the city. In particular, the biennial Flower Carpet Festival causes huge celebration as nearly a million begonia flowers are weaved into a carpet across the most beautiful square in Europe. Therefore, if youโ€™re looking to indulge in food, culture or art, Brussels should be high on your list for a long weekend in Europe.

  1. I agree. Brussels does not get enough credit for being a tourist destination. It is sometimes a stop on a tour bus 91984 for us) or a transit point for flights (2017 for us). That is how we have been there. Perhaps, some day, we will spend more time there and appreciate what the place has to offer.

  2. It’s so unfortunate to learn that Brussels, a city with so much to admire, is not getting enough credits yet I’m already in love with the place; I mean, the architecture of those buildings looks admirable and I wouldn’t hesitate to snap some photographs…not to forget street fun full of chocolates and waffles.
