West Europe

Brussels is another must-see in Europe – the political capital of the whole of Europe, with the EU Parliament and prominent EU institutions located there. In the afternoon, we will visit the Grand Place and Parc du Cinquantenaire – to enjoy the views of Baroque and neo-Gothic architecture in the city center of Brussels.

Belgium is known for its high-quality soft-centred chocolate, and chocolate is an important part of the country’s economy and culture. This is why today, we will experience what it is like to produce Belgian chocolate by participating in a chocolate workshop! Hopefully, there will be something left to bring back to China for your friends and family to taste 😉

Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium – a facility that includes six museums. The Royal Museums have an impeccable collection of over 20,000 drawings and sculptures and host the collections of some of Europe’s most prominent artists. Importantly and most interesting, the museum was founded by the famous French emperor Napoleon.

The Parlamentarium – an interactive space that allows everyone to immerse themselves in the daily workings of an EU politician. The Parlamentarium has facilities that allow visitors to engage in multimedia immersion in the heart of the EU Parliament and outlines the mechanisms of EU cooperation. It is the perfect space to even further understand EU culture!

Filled with museums, art, history, and hip places, Amsterdam is the new hotspot that attracts thousands of tourists annually.

It is the pinnacle of historic and art collections, hosting some of the most famous exhibits in Europe. And of course, we will not forget to try some Dutch Fusion Cuisine – street food like herring or stroopwafels, famous Indonesian and Surinamese tocos, and classical restaurants with traditional Dutch food.

Jewish district – Jordaan. It is a small but charming district in the West of Amsterdam which is known for its narrow and interconnected canal lines, hip cafes and stores, and many markets.
