This section begins at the boundary between the Flemish and the Brussels Capital Regions, right after leaving Halle, and heads to Tervuren, making its way past the most important places of Brussels. Along the Canal, you will find many old industrial remnants, some of which have been transformed into museums or hotels. Crossing the city centre and the UNECSO classified Grand Place, this section continues to the Royal Square and many green areas, such as the Cinquentaire park and Parc Royal, before reaching the Soignes Forest.

Brussels is an ideal place to cycle, offering various types of environments: the intense activity of the city centre, full of fashion shops, museums and regularly hosting cultural events in its pedestrian area, contrasts with the calm of its parks and the quiet majesty of the Soignes Forest. As the capital of Europe, Brussels has a rich history which you will be able to discover at the BELvue and La Fonderie museums. Brussels is also famous for its chocolate, beer and French fries. You will easily find places to savour these, but also to learn more about their fabrication process. The Chocolate museum welcomes you in the city centre, the Stock Exchange building will soon be reconverted in a Beer Temple, and some ancient breweries still produce beer to this day!

Of course, Brussels is also famous for pictorial art: don't miss the Royal Museum with its wide range of Flemish masters, nor the Magritte Museum!

From the Soignes forest to Wavre, you can follow the panels of the regional itinerary W2 "Beer route".
