Discover Brussels

How do you discover a city when you travel? We usually tend to go to the tourism office and ask for information, a map, and where locals go to.

In Brussels the tourism office has thought up this great new concept: city information stands, where you can find information about the place you are at. I found the idea great. Not only for tourists. The whole concept is around different Brussels walks.

Good idea this way to inform tourists. How many languages are used in this stands ?
Is English the new official language in Belgium ?
I though is was Français et Flamand !!!
Une bonne information sur ce qui se passe en tout cas.

I would be interested to see this in its context - to see how big it is and if it's a flag or a board. Just curious.
château-gontier, English is not the official language: French, Flemish and German are. That area in question (EU parliament) is very anglophone, with all the diplomatic staff working there. And if you want to reach out to tourist, English is the language of choice (yep, et je suis francophone).
