Accessibility & mobility

Right in the heart of Europe, Brussels has superb air, road and rail connections. More than 60 million Europeans live within 300km of Brussels, less than two hours by high-speed train. For those who fly in, it takes only 20 minutes from the Brussels airport (and 50 minutes from Brussels South Charleroi airport) to the city centre. And when you have arrived, it's easy to move around the compact city, by coach, public transport or on foot.

Furthermore, Brussels is the perfect accommodation base for day excursions in Belgium (Flanders and Wallonia).

Capital city of Europe

Brussels hosts a large number of international institutions as the NATO and a large number of institutions of the European Union as well as hundreds of satellite organizations (NGO’s, federations, consultancies, press associations, lobby organizations etc.).

The European institutions represent the interest of 500 million citizens but what are their role and their structure?

With a visit at the institutions and the The Parlamentarium - the European Parliament's Visitors' Centre - you will have a better understanding of the EU policy making-process, its history and diversity.
