Brussels, Belgium Vacations, Tourism, Guides, Hotels, Things to Do, Restaurants Wherever else you go in Belgium, allow at least a little time for BRUSSELS, which is by any standard one of Europe's premier cities. Certainly, don't let its unjustified reputation as a dull, faceless centre of EU bureaucracy deter you: in postwar years, the city has become a thriving, cosmopolitan metropolis, with top-flight architecture and museums, not to mention a well-preserved late seventeenth-century centre, a superb restaurant scene and an energetic nightlife. Moreover, most of the key attractions are crowded into a centre that is small enough to be absorbed over a few long days, its boundaries largely defined by a ring of boulevards – the "petit ring", or less colloquially, the "petite ceinture". First-time visitors to Brussels are often surprised by the raw vitality of the city centre. The city's specialist shops are another pleasure.
Explore Brussels Tourism Opportunities with the Brussels Belgium Travel Guide Best Chocolate shop at Brussels ? - Brussels Forum 5. Re: Best Chocolate shop at Brussels ? I'll add some information for chocophiles for future reference. If you are looking for chocolates ("pralines", in Brussels) rather than chocolate bars, shops at the airport and Gare du Midi stock all the brands, but otherwise these largely have their own individual shops, some with many branches - Neuhaus has 22 in Brussels. CHOCOPOLIS (belgiumchocolates.be/catalog/Collection.php), below the Hotel Best Western Premier Carrefour de l'Europe (official address something like 100 rue du Marché aux Herbes) stocks a brand called Devina but also Côte d’Or, Galler and Neuhaus, and they are negotiating with Godiva, so this could also be a useful one-stop shop near the Grand' Place. You will find branches of all the leading chocolate makers around the GP - NEUHAUS in the nearby Galeries St. roughguides.com/website/… Just this weekend I came across a GODIVA outlet shop near their factory next to Simonis metro station.
