• The secret is out and you can be in on it! •

Forget what you thought you knew about Brussels. The Belgian capital has shrugged off its boring image and is ready for its close up.

Boasting over 2,000 restaurants, a burgeoning live music scene, renowned fashion designers, world-class museums and performing art venues, and hundreds of acres of forests and parks, Brussels residents have known for years that their city is the best kept secret in Europe. Thanks to NATO, the European Union, several highly ranked universities, and the myriad multinational corporations that call Brussels home, the secret is out, and the streets of Brussels pulse with an international esprit. No wonder it's called "The Capital of Europe."
