About this journey

Political capital, cartoon crazy and rich in chocolate

Political capital, cartoon crazy and rich in chocolate Creamy chocolates, warm waffles, briny mussels. And of course, cartoons. The capital of the European Union offers these pleasures in addition to politics. In Le Grand place, one of the most beautiful squares in all of Europe, you can take part in important debates, too. Like, “Which truffle is better ? Godiva or Leonidas ?” This city has its share of quirky sights. Belgians love their cartoons, and you can see many on display at the Belgian centre of the comic strip. You probably won’t get the jokes, but that’s almost part of the fun. The Atomium, built for a 1958 fair and recently remodeled, is really a giant atom. Have a bite in the restaurant that sits at the top. Perhaps the tourist attraction with the most folly is a little boy that can’t hold it in. The Mannekin Pis fountain is three blocks from the Grand place, and stands not-quite-fully-dressed. What is covered of the little pisser is usually a silly costume – many of which are sent to him from fans the world over. Cases of his outfits are on display at the city Museum and are also worth the trip. Just as Le Grand place is the center of Brussels, the main rail stations are also at the heart of the city. This is a big advantage over airports. When you fly to your destination, forgo the cab ride and rental car – most places have frequent service to and from the airport by local commuter train. From Brussels airport, there are commuter trains that run every15 to 30 minutes into the city’s main stations, which include Nord, Midi/Zuid, and Central. The Midi station is the largest hub of the three. Get a Brussels Card before leaving home so you’ll have access to the extensive local public transit network as well as entrance to museums. And Brussels has some of Europe’s unheralded best. Learn more about Brussels

The oldest city in the Netherlands ?

The oldest city in the Netherlands ? Maastricht is named after the Maas river that flows through it. Recent history was made at its city hall, where in 1992 the Maastrict Treaty was signed paving the way for the European Union. Come walk in the footsteps of world leaders in this southern Dutch city in what is considered to some to be the oldest city in the Netherlands Maastricht can trace its roots back to the Romans in 50 B.C., which gave the residents plenty of time to turn the capital of Limburg province into a modern, prosperous city. No doubt helped by the popularity of the notoriously stinky Limburger cheese. After three months of life, the bacterium used to ferment the frommage is the same one found on human skin that is partially responsible for body odor. Perhaps this was discovered at Maastricht University. With a large international student population, the school offers many Masters and PhD programs in English and is home to world-class medical research. This youthful population helps fuel the city's culture. Meet friendly locals or fellow travelers at Vrijthof, the city's main square with its busy cafes. Leave the guidebook at home - just wander through the neighborhoods and take in the views. Or head below ground to the Casemates, an underground network of tunnels built as shelter for guns and cannons. Running for several miles below the city's fortifications, you can take a guided tour of these impressive shellproof refuges. For centuries, the famous Caves of St. Pieter were used to quarry marl, creating an underground labyrinth with over 20,000 passageways. These turned out to be very handy hiding places for residents during WWII sieges. You can still see some of the facilities installed at the time. Back above ground, shop, eat and wander at the Inner City – Maastricht's main shopping district. Winner of numerous design awards, the Entre Deux is a recently-rebuilt center that includes a bookstore located inside a former 13th century church. The British newspaper The Guardian deemed it the world's most beautiful bookshop. To experience more beauty, visit Maastricht in March when the European Fine Art Fair has been held every year since 1975. Noted as the world's leading art and antiques fair, over 250 of the most prestigious dealers from 17 countries come to buy and sell. Bordering Belgium, side trips to other countries are a breeze when you've got a Eurail Benelux Pass. Thirty minutes away, Liège, the birthplace of Charlemagne, is experiencing a renaissance. The new Santiago Calatrava-designed station is arguably the most beautiful in Europe and a destination unto itself. From Liège, you can make connections to Luxembourg, a duch-y treat with the world's richest residents. Maastricht may not have been on your travel radar – but if you want to see a southern-side to The Netherlands, come see the difference. It's the sweet smell of success. Learn more about Maastricht
