With majestic towns like Bruges and Ghent, medieval castles, world-heritage sites, coupled with tempting places to sample its famous chocolate or beer, it’s no wonder Belgium is an all-year-round destination. At Christmas, traditional cosy markets that adorn picturesque town squares, attract visitors from all over the world.
Like so many places, strict Covid-19 restrictions have made travelling to Belgium difficult for some time. However, having the second highest level of international presence in a city (New York being the first), its capital, Brussels, often labelled the 'Capital of Europe', is never short on visitors.
Both the European Union and NATO have their headquarters in Brussels, making it a hub for diplomats, business travellers, and a home for expats. Around 5,000 diplomats live in Brussels, and with over 2,000 multi-national organisations basing their head offices here, it’s no wonder reliable travel assistance is a necessity for visitors to Belgium.
