Brussels, the European capital has a lot to offer its visitors. The architectural heritage mixes with the numerous activities and gives this conurbation a certain dynamism. To stay there, there is nothing like a charming hotel in Brussels that will make you enjoy all the amenities of this place. With monuments on every corner of the street and activities throughout the city, the capital is both modern and historic.
Between monumental architecture and a dynamic city centre: the centre of Brussels
Choosing a hotel in the city centre of Brussels means positioning yourself at the heart of Brussels' dynamism by being close to the 'Grand-Place'. A mythical gathering place, the square is sometimes perceived as the most beautiful in the world. From baroque to renaissance, the styles of the buildings intersect to offer an ideal place to book a luxury hotel in Brussels. The exuberant facades, the King's house or the town hall are located near the Grand Place and make it a central place of Brussels life.
Also unmissable, the Manneken-Pis is located in the heart of the pedestrian streets of the city. This 55.5 cm high bronze statuette is still the city's most famous figure. Favouring a luxury hotel in Brussels will be an opportunity to stay close to the famous Manneken-Pis. The statue regularly changes costumes. All of these can be seen at the city museum in the King's house nearby.
To book a hotel in the city centre of Brussels is also to be located as close as possible to the Galeries Saint-Hubert. Built in the 19th century, the architecture of these galleries houses upscale shops for the pleasure of visitors.
On the outskirts of Brussels, numerous activities marking the importance of Europe
Outside the centre, the city assumes its role as European capital. The main institutions are located in the neighbourhood of Europe. The parliament, with its very modern architecture, contrasts with the oldest Brussels monuments. Some museums trace the history of European construction.
Not far from this quarter, atomium is particularly surprising because of its elemental iron mesh shape. Symbol of the city, it was built on the occasion of the 1958 Universal Exhibition. Several elevators and staircases provide access to the different rooms of the atomium, which gathers museums, restaurants and various activities.
Just next door, the mini-Europe park is, as its name suggests, a representation of the main European spaces. Opting for a charming hotel in nearby Brussels allows you to discover the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben or the miniature canals of Amsterdam. The visit is embellished with activities and animations recounting the history of the different cities that are part of the circuit.
