From the famous Surrealist paintings of René Magritte, to the emerging contemporary art scene, the city hides many underrated masterpieces and contains plenty of architectural jewels.

If you are a fan of great music then Brussels has everything to entertain you.

During summer, the city hosts outstanding outdoor music festivals while the rest of the year you can enjoy great concerts at le Botanique, l’Ancienne Belgique and many other places. Pssst, if you are an electronic music goer, don’t miss the Fuse, one of the best electro club in the world!
Center of Europe
For those of you that are studying journalism, European communication or who are simply interested into European politics, Brussels is THE place to be. As the capital of Europe, the city hosts the main European institutions, which means that European politics is discussed, voted and takes place in Brussels! If you need to keep up with the times regarding Europe, its history and its functioning, go ahead and visit the Parlamentarium or the House of European History. You’ll see, Europe will no longer hide secret from you!
Now let’s be honest, an exchange remains the best opportunity to travel abroad! As you might have seen, Belgium is rather a small country and is very easy to travel in. Use your days off to discover other brilliant Belgian cities such as Ghent, Antwerp or Liège. And when your schedule allows you, go on city trip in our nearby European capitals. With its unique location, Brussels stands at a strategic point to travel to Paris, London, Berlin or Amsterdam. And guess what? It’s easy and cheap.
