Take the chocolate and beer back to your Brussels apartment
When you hear the word Brussels, beer is probably the first thing that most people think about. While there are lots of ales and lagers to tickle your taste buds, and many pubs to drink them in, don’t waste all your time going around the bars, as there are other things to see and do here. With Brussels apartments you can make the most of your time in the city and discover what else it has to offer. If, like us, you're a chocolate lover then don’t leave without visiting the Chocolate Museum, and also making a trip around some of the best chocolate shops you will come across. Stock up on all the chocolate goodies you can imagine and even take some back with you to enjoy when you get back home – or at the very least in your apartment in Brussels if you can’t manage to last that long! Apart from that if you’re here visiting with kids then climbing the Atomium, going to the Comic Strip Museum and also watching puppet performances will keep them entertained- and you too for that matter.

Central apartments in Brussels
The city centre area of Brussels is awash with a vast selection of sights to keep all ages satisfied making a Brussels Centre apartment a great choice for a sightseeing holiday in Belgium. Start off by visiting the Palais Royale to witness the lavish palace of the Royal Family. Although it is no longer the residential home of the monarchy it is still used for formal receptions. We recommend visiting this great structure in the summer when the doors are open to discover the awe-inspiring designs of the Goya room and Tapestry room, to name just a few highlights. Afterwards you can take a visit to the Palais de Justice which is located in the Saint Gilles area of the city. Belgium´s supreme court meets here in a building three times the size of the Royal Palace. A controversial build at the time it has been residing its presence over Brussels since the 19th century.
Accommodation in Brussels centre is a great choice if you are holidaying with the whole family. The Belgian Comic Strip Centre is sure to appeal to the kids and honours the Belgian comic industry. Next, why not have a relaxing breather in Parc de Bruxelles, regarded as the green lung of the city. Whether you just want to stroll at your leisure or take in an outdoor show, the options will be endless in this idyllic spot. When in the city centre you can´t avoid the Grand Place, the main square of Brussels. The eye-catching designs of the square are truly spectacular with numerous guild houses and lavish designs showing the true wealth of the area. Every other year this square comes to life with a Flower carpet taking over the region, in a spectacular demonstration that cannot be missed. Other Places well worth a visit are the Place du Petit Sablon and Place du Grand Sablon, exquisite squares which show the authentic origins of this fascinating city.
Brussels has so much history to tell with a range of museums present all the way to guide you on your quest for knowledge. The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium are a good starting point, with four museums dedicated to the different sculptures and paintings from some of the best Belgian artists. Another great museum is the Maison du Roi, a UNESCO world heritage site that is as fascinating architecturally as the exhibits it houses. After experiencing the finest museums in Brussels why not go on an adventure of your own to find Manneken Pis and his friends. Manneken Pis is a statue located near Grand Place depicting a little peeing boy that has become a fond character in the city. However, other versions such as one of a little girl, Jeanneke Pis and of a dog, Zinneke Pis are less known and well worth a visit to when in the capital. A central apartment in Brussels will ensure that you can discover a range of enjoyable activities right on your doorstep.
Brussels Accommodation in the European Quarter
An apartment in the European Quarter is a great place to stay to be in the midst of official European legislative matters. Brussels is the home of the European Commission and Parliament, which can be clearly felt in the area. The European Commission meets in the Berlaymont building, which is opened once a year on Europe Day allowing visitors to see the meeting rooms that so many heads of state have conducted business in over the years. Another key building is that of the European Parliament which is made up of two wings, the Paul-Henri Spaak building and the Altiero Spinelli building. Unlike the Berlayment building, this structure is always open to the public, who can watch on in amazement when parliament is in session, listening to that day´s topic of interest. Don’t worry if politics isn’t your thing as the neighbourhood also has other activities to entice you. The exceptional Parc du Cinquantenaire is a great example of how to integrate a range of activities in one area for all the family to experience. Whether you want to learn about art, military or automobile history you will find it in a range of museums within the park. You can also see the magnificent Arch of Triumph or to get the best view of Brussels why not have your dinner in the sky, thanks to a crane that elevates you while you tuck in. The European Quarter has so many highlights which makes it the perfect spot to rent a holiday apartment in Brussels.
