Brussels: heart of Europe

Brussels’s ideal central location ensures optimal accessibility from all directions. High-speed trains link Brussels with London, Amsterdam, Paris and Cologne in an hour or two. Brussels Airport provides access to and from the whole world. The Belgian road network is well developed, free at source and well lit at night.

A capital of manageable size

Although Brussels is the capital of Belgium and the European Union, it remains eminently accessible. You can get to any point in the city using the extensive bus, tram, metro and train network. But thanks to Brussels’ manageable size, you can most often also get around easily on foot or by bike.
