Brussels, the capital of Europe, is an up and coming weekend destination, and not only for Europe’s politicians. Many of the best restaurants in the world are here, serving some of the best food you can imagine. Also, the city’s trendy bars serve a widest thinkable variety of the tastiest beer in the world.

The Belgian capital is not only there to please your culinary senses. Art and style is taking an ever bigger share of the attention from its visitors. The cultural discussion these days is well beyond the attributes of the city’s symbol, ‘Manneken Pis’. Evidently, it’s hard not to poke fun of this little infamous statue.

While ‘Grand Place‘ remains the focal point of the city and ‘Atomium‘ takes up the role as the most popular attraction, the art scene has also plenty to offer.

In our post Spotlight Brussels: Hot Cultural Tips for the Fall of 2013 we have been focusing in on the most interesting exhibitions currently in town, where India, Andy Warhol and even optical illusions take up the focus of our attention.
