The last weeks 20 selected cities battled for the prestigious title of Best European Destination 2012. This week, the winners were announced. Brussels ended on the 5th place.
Its Brussels’ multicultural character that is most enjoyed by the visitor. In addition, the creativity, good food and the touch of self-mockery - that makes Brussels so unique - are points that enchant the tourists.
VISITBRUSSELS is delighted with this result. Patrick Bontinck, CEO: “This achievement proves that the visitors find Brussels - that not so long ago was known as the most boring city - a top European destination. We see this recognition as a great compliment to the efforts of the entire tourism sector. Today we are 5th, we are however going to do our upmost to achieve a spot in the top 3 next time.”
