No wonder that Julius Caesar & co felt so at home here. Our rich landscape reminded the Romans of the rolling panoramas of their homeland. Tasty, high-quality products that came straight from the field tasted like cucina di mamma. And the art of enjoyment that we inherited from our Celtic ancestors undoubtedly felt familiar.
After all these years, this savoir vivre is still alive in Belgiums oldest city. You feel it everywhere. Whats more, you can taste it too in our Michelin-star restaurants, brasseries, pubs and local products.
