On your next trip to Belgium’s capital make sure to consider our Brussels car hire services in order to reach your destinations in the quickest of times. Brussels is known to be the headquarters of many European Union institutions and as such it is considered the capital of the European Union to some extent. Situated at the meeting place of the Germanic and the Romance cultures of Europe the place is virtual melting pot while managing to maintain its unique character.
When you fly into the city you will land either at Brussels Airport or at Charleroi Airport. Brussels Airport is connected to the city via a train line which runs every fifteen minutes and takes anywhere between twenty to twenty-five minutes to reach the tree main stations in Brussels, two bus routes as well as taxis of course. The best choice by far is to employ our Brussels car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Once you get into the city one of the main things that should see and will see undoubtedly is the Grand Place-Grote Markt. This is the central square of the city which is surrounded by the city tower and a series of very beautiful three hundred year old buildings. At night and during the evening the square is brightly lit and occasionally there are music and light shows projected upon the old buildings.
Manneken Pis is an interesting piece of Brussels, representing the irreverent spirit of the city, this is a statue of a child performing a very basic natural function. There are quite a few legends surrounding its creation and the statue is oftentimes dressed up in various costumes, so it is definitely something to look for.
A great place to get a good view over the entire city is by climbing on the terrace of the Arc de Triomphe-Triomfboog. The building is located on the east side of town.
One unavoidable icon of both Brussels and Belgium is the Atomium. This monument has been important for international tourism ever since its unveiling at the World Fair of 1958.
These are only a few of the attractions that Brussels has to offer, not even mentioning other great buildings, the museums, the buildings related to the European Union and of course its breweries and cuisine. All of these are best explored with the help of our Brussels car hire services.
