The capital of the EU
Brussels is known as the headquarters of many European institutions and is therefore often called the capital of Europe. However, Belgian waffles, the refreshing but sometimes also strong beer and last but not least the Belgian chocolate are a few more things for which the city is famous - besides its political reputation. French and Dutch are officially spoken in Brussels. Thus, street signs and landmarks are also labeled with two names: so don't panic if you end up at the Grote Markt while looking for the Grand Place. This, by the way, is one of Brussels' greatest sights, as is the "Manneken Pis", Brussels' cheeky landmark. In addition, be sure to visit the Atomium, the European Quarter and Mini Europe before taking a forced bite of Brussels' world-famous chocolates.
