What’s on in Brussels
Events, Meteo, ATM map and services
Brussels, the capital of Belgium, is a unique city with a variety of features that make it stand out.
One aspect that makes Brussels unique is its beer culture. The city offers a wide variety of unique and flavorful beers that are distinct from those found in other countries.
Another unique feature of Brussels is its history and landmarks. One of the most popular and unique points of interest in the city is the statue of Manneken Pis, which symbolizes the sense of humor of the Belgian people.
Additionally, Brussels is known for its diverse culinary scene. The city will host an event where 10 Michelin-starred chefs will cook for 220 people simultaneously on platforms raised by cranes into the sky.
Finally, Brussels is unique for being the capital of Europe, which makes it a melting pot of different languages and cultures from all over the world. The diversity of the people working in the city’s office is one of the reasons that makes it special.
In particular, Etterbeek, the neighborhood where we are located, offers a variety of advantages for those who choose to live there.
One advantage is that Etterbeek strikes a good balance between being a residential neighbourhood while still offering plenty of commercial amenities like cafes, restaurants and shops, for example around Place Jourdan.
Another advantage is that the neighborhood is diverse and multicultural. Living in a diverse community encourages understanding and makes neighborhoods more intriguing and unique. Simply living in a multicultural city can help develop tolerance and understanding of different nations. This is particularly beneficial for diplomats, ambassadors and people who frequently deal with negotiations and talks at the international level.
Etterbeek is multicultural because it is located in Brussels, the capital of Europe. The city is home to many people from all over the world, including expats, and as a result, offers many different languages and cultures. Given the high number of expats in the area, many of the entertainment and leisure-focused businesses are specifically targeted at expats and as a result offer English language classes for activities like yoga, painting or dancing.
The region of Brussels-Capitale is composed by 19 communes: Anderlecht, Auderghem, Berchem-Sainte-Agathe, Bruxelles-ville, Etterbeek, Evere, Forest, Ganshoren, Ixelles / Elsene, Jette, Koekelberg, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Saint-Gilles, Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, Schaerbeek, Uccle, Watermael-Boitsfort, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, et Woluwe-Saint-Pierre.
At Familia, we are glad to provide a safe space for children and adults in the hearth of Etterbeek, near the European quarter.
