Brussels is a place that makes things happen, in every way. It is a melting-pot of nations, a multicultural city with an eventful history, full of contradictions and friction. It is the political headquarters of Europe. It was marked by the Middle Ages, and is a city of art nouveau. It is the world capital of the comic, a site of unique chocolateries, and famous for having the best french fries. Brussels stands for opulent restaurants and unbelievable bars with well over 100 kinds of beer. Brussels is a city filled with secrets, hidden treasures, and many exciting surprises - 111 times over.

Kay Walter is a journalist who has lived in Brussels for many years, where he has made numerous films about the city and its people. He loves the refined chaos of Brussels, and he especially appreciates the cuisine and the beer. He strives to find out what lies behind the shining façades along the city streets. Rüdiger Liedtke is the author of the bestsellers, 111 Places in Munich That You Shouldn't Miss (Volumes I and II) and 111 Places in Munich That Have Stories to Tell. He has also written 111 Places guidebooks for Mallorca and Cape Town. He lives and works in Cologne, Germany.
