Welkom, bienvenue, willkommen! 

What do the world’s most popular music festival, cycling and beer have in common?  The 2019 EU Open House at the Embassy of Belgium!  Join us on Saturday, May 11 for the 13th iteration of this wonderful day celebrating Belgian and European culture. 

Visitors this year will have plenty to experience!  Party at our Tomorrowland & Brussels Airlines DJ-Booth. Enter our contest for a chance to board Brussels Airline’s party flight and experience the sold-out Tomorrowland festival in Boom, near Brussels, July 2019!  See the terms and conditions below.

We will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of Belgian cyclist Eddy Merckx’ first Tour de France win with a unique cycling expo. This is sure to get everyone in the mood for when the race kicks off from Brussels on July 6. 

As in past years, guests can taste delicious Belgian foods and chocolates as they wind through our hallways.  Try your hand at winning a diamond from the Antwerp Diamond Board, learn about our world-class universities and research centers, discover our cutting edge technology, our start-up friendly cities as well as our top-notch infrastructure.  Did you know that Belgium is also the home of the EU and to NATO, which celebrated its 70th anniversary this year?  It’s no wonder that almost 1,000 US companies enjoy its location at the heart of Europe, and stay for the unparalleled lifestyle.

We look forward to seeing you on May 11!
