Brussels will be the European City of Culture in 2000 and offers excellent sightseeing, shopping and dining facilities, with more Michelin-starred restaurants per square mile than any other European city. The antiques fair in the Place du Grand Sablon and flea market in the Place de Jeu-de- Balles are ideal for bargain-hunters. Among hundreds of bars and cafes, Le Greenwich is celebrated for its decor, and also plays host to the city's chess- players.
The prize on offer includes two first-class Eurostar tickets, a double or twin hotel-room for two weekend nights, and free admission to the Ensor exhibition. The trip must be taken over a weekend between 7 January and 4 February inclusive.
