100% Belgian " Vine Festival" in La Hulpe: 2-4 June

May 16, 2023

For the first year, we propose you to attend the first 100% Belgian Vine Festival, taking place in La Hulpe from 2 to 4 June 2023.  The programme includes a conference, an oenology workshop, a visit to a vineyard, meetings with passionate winegrowers and a tasting of Belgian wines. But what is really unique is the opportunity to be able, in one and the same place, after having tasted these Belgian wines and discovered their particularities, to buy bottles on the spot.  Lovers of short circuits who sometimes lack the time to put their ideals into practice will be delighted by this great opportunity to complete their cellar of Belgian beverages. From the grape to the bottle, Belgian wines will hold no secrets for you and your friends will be delighted that you are helping them discover them. As wine and driving don't mix, we suggest you book our Festival de la Vigne package to fully enjoy the event and stay almost on site. It gives you access to all the activities of the weekend. Discover the full programme. ... Read more

How to surprise your Valentine

January 23, 2023

Some people see Valentine's Day as a commercial day celebrated only by new couples, whether they are 20 or 60 years old, still driven by the desire to seduce and impress their partner.   However, this celebration has the merit of reminding us that surprising one's partner, getting away from everyday life, and creating a private interlude allows the two of you to continue dreaming together.   According to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, "Love, once it has sprouted, gives roots that never stop growing.” However, this love must be regularly watered and sunned by delicate attentions, shared experiences and gentle words for it to continue to flourish.   At Dolce by Wyndham La Hulpe Brussels, we offer you several experiences to show your love, whether you are a fan of Valentine's Day or not. ...

March 02, 2020

Ever heard of lambic beer? We'll explain.
