The European Quarter

The expansion of Brussels impacted upon the natural beauties of this formerly verdant suburb. It is now home to European Union offices, making it the most cosmopolitan place in the city (and on the continent). Controversial for its urban environment and a perpetual building site, the area remains appealing on account of its museums (Musée Wiertz, Muséum des Sciences naturelles), park, squares and buildings.
