As the capital of Europe, Brussels is definitely worth a visit. With
its many old buildings and the truly magnificent Grand Place (or Grote Markt),
it has a character of its own. There are many nice restaurants and even in the
dark days of winter, there is still a bit of a bustle. It is an expensive place
to stay, even compared to other European capitals and it is absolutely freezing
in February. The beer does make up for this though.
