Beer, lace and chocolate are the three items that Belgium is famous for and the most sought after souvenirs. All visitors to Brussels should not miss the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate, located just a stone’s throw from Grand Place
, the city’s main market square. The museum can be found in De Valk House named after the owner at the time when it was built in 1697. In 2005, the house became the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate that it is today.
