Needing no introduction but often forgotten as one of the worlds great cities, Brussels has much to offer the UHOTW traveller. It's not all chips, beer and chocolate! Recognised as one of the great gourmet destinations, 2012 sees the celebration of Brusselicious - a year long celebration of regional specialities, chocolate, fine wine and beer. Something to tempt all tastes and budgets, from humble waffles and street cafe culture, to Michelin starred delicacies.
As well as the sights of the Grand Place, Atomium (where children can stay) and the Art Deco architecture, Brussels is also home to 4 fascinating museums, deserving special mention:
Every Sunday from the first Sunday in April until the first Sunday in October you can discover Brussels and its history during a 40km journey in an historic tram dating from 1935. The Tram Museum guide will show you many hidden treasures Brussels and plenty of stories. Book direct with the museum <here>.
As a special treat to celebrate Brusselicious 2012, a Gourmet + Tram experience is running through 2012. As its name suggests, 'Tram Experience' aims to offer a gastronomic and touristic experience that is unmatched anywhere in the world. Guests will be able to enjoy several classic dishes of Belgian gastronomy, all modified for the occasion by top Belgian chefs. At the same time, they will be travelling along some of the Region's most attractive roads, seated inside a vehicle with a white, sleek and modern decor.
