Belgian playwright and poet Maurice Maeterlinck (1862–1949) once said, “How strangely do we diminish a thing as soon as we try to express it in words.” How true this is for Brussels, the 62-square-mile Art Deco Belgian capital known for its breathtaking art and culture and as the cornerstone of Europe as host to NATO and the World Customs Organization. Founded in 979, the French- and Dutch-speaking city today thrives as a bustling business destination (and chocolate and beer lover’s paradise), boasting a 5.8 percent increase in business visits in the past year. Business travelers can enjoy the city’s high standards for hotels, food and drink and may decide to tack on extra time to enjoy the city’s culture.
