As an international capital with a high quality of life, Brussels is uniquely positioned on the European and world tourism map and offers a real balance between business and leisure tourism.
The presence of the European institutions, NATO and more than 2,200 international associations generates a particularly intense congress and meeting activity for a city of just 1.2 million inhabitants.
Moreover, with 183 nationalities present on its territory, Brussels is the second most cosmopolitan city in the world and the first in Europe. A veritable laboratory of cultural diversity, it attracts people through its creativity and has become a hub for contemporary art. If you combine this with its historical centre, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Belgian capital is particularly attractive for short stays.
