  • It is located in front of EU headquarters Brussels Schuman Station. You cannot get inside is closed all holidays. Still, several tour groups took pictures in front of. I think it should stop when no attractions around the Arc de Triomphe and military museum to go around.

  • Especially the cross-shaped building of the European Commission's great times "in real" to see. Many confuse the Parliament with the Commission. The Parliament building is in the Rue Wiertz to the Park Leopold, the Commission and the Council are here in the EU neighbourhood. Google contributes to the confusion with his note that the Commission building was a "County Government". There, you can see that Google in US sitting and has not much idea of Europe. The Commission is actually something like the Government, but of all States of Europe and not "district". The Commission building is to visit at any time from the inside. Will be discussed in the Parliament, it has but no execution power and in the Council advise the Governments of the individual States. Only the European Commission has the Executive Branch, the power to enact laws. I'm glad that I was there and was able to learn the distinctions. The building of the Council are quite Brown and somewhat inconspicuous, well after all the giant self-representation messy does.

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
