Brussels City

  • Formally known as the European Union’s capital

  • The European Commission’s headquarters and The European Union’s Council are based in Brussels.

  • The Royal Palace, where the King of the Belgians exercises his prerogatives as head of state, is situated alongside Brussels' Park.

  • The City of Brussels is also the capital of both the French Community of Belgium and the Flemish Community.

  • Serving as the centre of administration for Belgium and Europe, Brussels' economy is largely service-oriented. It is dominated by regional and world headquarters of multinationals, by European institutions, by various local and federal administrations, and by related services companies, though it does have a number of notable craft industries, such as the Cantillon Brewery, a lambic brewery founded in 1900.
