A brand new series from Insight brings you the Smart Guide to Brussels.
The unique and innovative A-Z format of Smart Guides allows you to plan your trip according to your own personal taste.
Themed headings cover over 400 amazing things to see and do, including hotels, cafes, churches, fashion, history, nightlife, restaurants, shopping, theatre and much more for a truly tailor-made, individual travel experience.
Special chapters highlight the best of the city's Art Nouveau buildings and its many museums and art galleries, including the Royal Museums of Fine Arts and the Musee Horta.
There are also details of where to find designer clothes stores, chocolatiers and street markets, plus where to go for the best Belgian beers and moules-frites.
Area overviews conveniently highlight the best each district has to offer, from the guildhouses of the Grand Place and the gentrified streets of Sablon to the bureaucratic architecture of the European Quarter.
Sights outside the city are also covered, including Waterloo and the medieval town of Leuven. The front-cover flap highlights all the top sights of the destination, allowing you to set your trip priorities, whilst the back-cover flap provides useful Dutch phrases to help you get by, along with other useful contact information.
The guide also contains a street atlas with full index and detailed mapping which is cross-referenced to the main text for ease of use and transport maps are provided to help you get around and explore.
