FIVE UNFORGETTABLE GROUP EXPERIENCES IN BRUSSELS

Rocco Forte Hotels

Organizing a successful event is about both creating spaces to network and learn as well as memories that linger long in the consciousness. One of the reasons we love Brussels is because of the eclectic range of experiences on offer across the city, from the vibrant arts scene and wealth of beautiful architecture to its reputation for gourmet excellence and proximity to Belgium’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here are five incredible group experiences that will make your event truly memorable.

Take an Art Tour

An art lover’s paradise, Brussels is home to a wealth of world-class galleries. Guests and delegates will relish a tour of the city’s most artistic haunts, from unmissable exhibitions to studio visits, as well as the Art Deco Villa Empain, a private home with a magnificent collection.

Unforgettable Events in Historic Settings

Brussels is blessed with some extraordinarily beautiful buildings—of which Hotel Amigo is one—and we are lucky enough to have exclusive use of some of the city’s uniquely historic events spaces. Whether it’s a party in the fairy-tale surroundings of Château de la Hulpe, a neo-Renaissance castle, or a decadent private dinner at Villa Empain, we will create once-in-a-lifetime memories.

Meet the Makers

Belgium’s most famous gastronomic exports are beer and chocolate, and groups will have the opportunity to see how both are made. Whether it’s a visit to award-winning Belgian chocolatier Laurent Gerbaud, to learn how to properly taste different chocolates before creating their own; or a tour of a leading Brussels brewery to sample the famous beer, there are plenty of memorable experiences on offer. For those less interested in food, spend a morning at Delvaux, one of Belgium’s oldest leather brands, and see the master artisans hard at work.

Extraordinary Day Trips

Take advantage of Brussels’ proximity to the charming towns of Bruges and Ghent with an exclusive day trip. They’ll be able to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bruges by boat or soak up the stunning medieval art and architecture of Ghent.

Sample Belgium’s Street Food

If you’re after something a little more informal, plan a fun-filled evening with Hotel Amigo’s Belgium street food experience. The hotel’s head chef will serve up the most delicious regional dishes, with help from the finest local gourmet producers, alongside an expert-led Belgian beer tasting and live DJ sets.
