International city hostel

The Bruegel Hostel is an international hotspot within walking distance of Central Station and the Grote Markt. Brussels’ top attractions are all within easy reach. In addition, the hostel is entirely in the theme of painter Pieter Bruegel, which makes it the ideal place to retreat to in the evening.

Weekend trip to a true metropolis

Brussels is known as the capital of Europe and there’s a good reason for that. Visit the must-see tourist attractions, quench your cultural thirst at one of the many museums or let your hair down at one of the concerts and festivals. Architecture lovers will be in for a treat too as Brussels features marvellous modern architecture together with classics such as the many Art Nouveau creations of Victor Horta. Shopaholics can head to Rue Neuve or Avenue Louise. Or if you are more of a bargain hunter, visit the famous flea market in the old Marolles quarter. There are simply too many highlights to list!
