Did you know? Brussels has more cultural events per inhabitant than... New York. With over a hundred museums and just as many concert halls, theatres, cultural centres and art galleries, the range is breathtaking. Architecture lovers will be in 7th heaven. On every street, you'll be able to admire the intermingled remains of medieval, Flemish, art deco, art nouveau and contemporary architecture. Brussels is also one of the greenest cities in Europe (50% of its area is taken up by parks), with the largest pedestrian zone after Venice and a cycle network that has little to envy Amsterdam or Strasbourg, two other champions of cycling. The city is delightfully cosmopolitan, with 104 nationalities represented among its inhabitants and gastronomy from all over the world. There's delicious chocolate, waffles to die for, the best chips and, of course, excellent beer from one of the many microbreweries dotted around the city.
