Enjoy your flight to Brussels with Air France

Brussels is the heart of the European Union and has a fascinating culture

Brussels is the capital city of Belgium, but its influence extends far beyond the country. It is the headquarters of the European Parliament, making Brussels effectively the capital of the European Union. It has great transport links to other European cities and is a destination for many politicians and policymakers throughout the EU, though it also attracts many visitors on holiday. You can learn more about the history of the European project at the Parliamentarian, a museum.
You can fly to Brussels with Air France, with several flights each week. You will receive many benefits if you choose the airline. You will be given a blanket and pillow to make your trip more comfortable, and there is good quality entertainment available on the individual video screen - including games, movies and music. It is possible to buy your airline ticket online where you can check and change the details of your reservation, reserve your own personal options for food, seat and your preferred cabin size, and an online check-in is available up to 30 hours before the flight leaves. You can also earn rewards for each journey if you join the Flying Blue program .
Although the country historically spoke Dutch, French is now the main language of Belgium. The country is host to many different cultures and languages, however, and all European languages can be heard at some point or another.

Brussels is a city with fantastic food and many cultural attractions

There are a number of well-known landmarks to visit during your stay. Visit the Grand Place, the central square in the city, where you can also see the town hall and some more impressive buildings. Many visitors go to the Royal Palace of Laeken, the official residence of the Royal Family of Belgium. Its Royal greenhouses are particularly popular, though they are only open during certain weeks of the year, so check before you go. Separately, and nearer the centre of the city, is The Royal Palace - though royalty do not live there. The Royal Collection includes state portraits of historical figures such as Napoleon, Leopold I, and King Louise Philippe. However again, check for the opening times of this exclusive attraction.
There are over 80 museums in Brussels to visit on a wide range of topics. For example, The Magritte Museum houses the largest collection of surrealist painter Rene Magritte. The Comic Museum supplements the 'Comic Book Route' where pictures of comic book characters have been painted on the walls in the city. There are a number of beautiful natural spaces, such as the Foret des Soignes, and the city also boasts many parks to rest and relax in.
Belgian cuisine is now popular around the world. Enjoy some Brussels food with the waffle, some authentic Belgian chocolate, French fries, moules (mussels) and of course, its famous beer. The famous Christmas vegetable the Brussels Sprout also probably originated in the city. This substantial culinary heritage may be why there are an estimated 1800 restaurants in the city to sample.
