"Historic European Hub"

Made up of a seemingly austere mass of steel and concrete, the European Quarter carries a lively cultural spirit that belies its otherwise businesslike personality. Centered around the Berlaymont building that houses the European Commission since 1969, the sprawling corners of the quarter hold several monumental landmarks, vibrant squares, world-class museums, shopping avenues, and verdant landscapes within its boundaries. Once known as the Leopold Quarter, this neighborhood was originally a residential area, before the arrival of the commission transformed it into the official hub it is today. This bustling quarter is home to important landmarks such as the intimidating Europa Building and European Parliament, the ever-crowded Place du Luxembourg, or 'Plux' and historic Antoine Wiertz Museum.
