With Brussels, it’s rarely a case of love at first sight, but this is a city that soon gets under your skin. Despite its grey image, the “capital” of Europe is not short of showpiece buildings or stunning works of art- and its shabby slightly frayed feel could be regarded as part of its charm. The EU presence lends the city an upbeat, cosmopolitan atmosphere, while the Dutch-speaking minority adds a cultural cutting edge- and all the city’s communities unite in their appreciation of the finer things in life. The cooking really is superlative, even in the humblest corner café; the beer is out of this world, and the local penchant for self-depreciating humour gives the nightlife an earthy, unpretentious vibe.
The core of Brussels is the plectrum-shaped Pentagone, home to the Upper and Lower towns. At the Lower Town’s heart is the Grand’Place, an awe-inspiringly opulent square graced with gilt- strewn guildhouses and a Gothic town hall. Around it bustle bars and restaurants in a warren of medieval streets known as the llôt Sacré (“Sacred isle”). The Upper Town, otherwise known as the Royal Quarter, is almost oppressively monumental, its wide boulevards, mansions and palaces still lofty and inaccessible. The view back across town makes the uphill trudge worthwhile, however, and the Fine and Modern Arts Museums are essential viewing. Down rue de la Régence, under the shadow of the preposterously grandiose Palais de Justice, is the chic Sablon district, its main square lined with elegant houses, smart cafés and swish antiques shops. For something a little earthier, head into the Marolles, a traditional working-class area with a fabulous flea market.
Imagine a day with your wonderful Escort Lady in Brussel: Start with a nice coffee on the Grand’Place terrace. Once you’ve drunk it all in, amble together with your beautiful Escort lady through the llôt Sacré, visiting the Galeries St Hubert, one of the world’s first covered shopping arcades, and, if you can’t beat the urge, paying homage to Manneken Pis. Head up the Mont des Arts to the Upper Town, stopping at the art nouveau Old England building to visit the marvelous Musical Instruments Museum: the top-floor café is a good spot for a lunch with a view. See the Bruegels and Magrittes at the Fine and Modern Arts Museums, then stroll down with your Escort Girl to the Sablon for a spot of window shopping. In the evening, head to the streets around tranquil Place Ste Catherine for fine fish and moule-frîtes in any of dozen wonderful places before hunkering down for some serious beer appreciation in the bountiful bars of the Old Town. You could end up with your Escort Lady at the Place St Géry’s terraces, which are a magnet for the beautiful people, and have a dance at rue du Marché au Charbon where they play salsa at the Club Cartagena( No 70)..
Finally rest luxuriously at The White Hotel, which is located in the Upper Town near all the luxury boutiques. Its interior will fascinate you with its Belgium design and the dominant color white with just some particular touch of other colours. All the rooms are very generously and comfortable, which sets you in a relaxed mood to enjoy an unforgettable and exiting night cap with your charming Escort Lady.
