Tuck into Brussels

Brussels can be savoured thousands of different ways: there's lots of local and international gastronomy and unmissable and extraordinary visits and activities. There's really something for everyone!

You can go authentically Belgian and have mussels with chips on the cobbles of place du Jeu de Balle for Resto National, or you can travel halfway around the world and enjoy exotic flavours at the Indian Food Festival.

Have a refreshing break at the Belgian Beer Weekend or taste the specialities and best Bordeaux wines of the eat! BRUSSELS drink! BORDEAUX festival.

...and to round off the summer in style, don't miss the exceptional mixes and blends of the Brussels Cocktail Week.
