Belgian cuisine is renowned and there are many prestigious and highly-ranked restaurants in Belgium.
Belgian chocolate and beer are particularly famous and widely sold.
We invite you to visit Godiva, Marcolini, Neuhaus and many others chocolate houses.
There are over 500 varieties of beer and Belgium houses the biggest brewery in the world “ Inbev”.
