Good to know - the Brussels Fund for Scientific Congresses

This fund was created by the Brussels-Capital Region and the City of Brussels. The objective is to promote scientific research in Brussels, develop the capital's reputation as a scientific centre and increase the number of international congresses held in the city.


Two types of financial aid are available: prefinancing and grants.


Organisers are often confronted with expensive initial costs. For this reason, VisitBrussels can supply prefinancing for:


  • The conception of a logo,
  • The creation of a website,
  • The production of a brochure,
  • The booking of flights for speakers,
  • The costs for international broadcasting, telephone and fax.


The grants, for their part, are only available for congresses of less than 200 people.

The largest chocolate museum in Europe, soon to be open in Brussels!

It has been confirmed: the largest chocolate museum in Europe will be opening its doors in the heart of the European capital, on rue de l’Étuve, right next to the Manneken-Pis.


The current Brussels chocolate museum will move into this fully renovated 2,000m² space where it will benefit from the collections of Eddy Van Belle, which count more than 1,500 objects.


Eddy van Belle is not just a passionate fan of our national delicacy and everything that comes with it, he is also the project's promoter. An experienced promoter, as he already has several museums to his name, including the famous Choco-Story museum.


This new museum will benefit from an ideal location, in the very centre of Brussels, on the edge of a listed UNESCO zone. It will offer demonstrations, workshops and, more importantly, tasting sessions, as well as an educational itinerary that retraces the history of chocolate and cocoa. Facilities for organising incentive activities and team building excercises will, of course, also be present... a situation to be monitored closely!
