But it's a metropolis with a personal touch, and is internationally renowned for its conviviality. It offers a warm welcome to its numerous visitors: whether they come for business, culture, leisure or to get away from it all, a trip to Brussels is always memorable.
It's a global and proudly multicultural city… it's both historical and modern, a meeting point of North and South, and where the differences are maintained yet meld together harmoniously. Its cuisine can meet any challenge, its fashion is paraded on the world's leading catwalks, its Art Nouveau treasures offer more than 200 opportunities to be admired, and its comic strip heroes have recently become Hollywood stars.
