Discussing politics at the dinner table might be a no-no, but here in Brussels with your local host by your side, you’re free to ask whatever you want! Walk and talk your way through the buildings that surround the headquarters of one of the most powerful political institutions in the world - The European Union.

You’ll get to stroll through the lustrous Cinquantenaire Park and along Montgomery Street, soaking up the atmosphere in the city’s most luxurious area. A fitting way to start before diving into the political history of the city and the buildings you’ll soon spot.

In the European Quarter you could brush up on your EU knowledge at the Parliamentarian, or simply gawk at the shiny glass buildings and modern highrises that house the EU institutions. We love a surprise though, so you’ll get to experience a whole neighborhood which you’d never have known existed.

Forget Europhiles and bureaucracy - in Matonge, a district literally next to the European Quarter, you’ll find batik shops, Congolese restaurants and vibrant bars. And your experience is incomplete without taking the Metro to see the iconic Atomium. It’s weird and wonderful - exactly why we like it!
