We meet in Brussels!
Brussels houses many European Institutions and perhaps this is the reason why some claim it has an unexciting reputation. But then it is also known for its eccentricity, just think of Manneken Pis. Yes, there are the classics like the Grande Place, the Atomium, its chocolate, beer and frites. But there are a lot of other interesting things to discover: its renovated Africa museum, rich Art Nouveau architecture, its many queue-free museums, landscaped parks, its interesting music scene, …
This master class will also coincide with its Christmas market, which spreads across 2 kilometres through Brussels’ city centre and is a must-see for anyone visiting the city around this time of year
How to get there?
Right in the heart of Europe, Brussels has superb air, road and rail connections. For those who fly in, it takes only 20 minutes from the airport to the city centre. You can also use Charleroi airport, which is a hub for many low cost carriers and has a direct shuttle bus connection to Brussels South railway station.
