This week, Travel Today With Peter Greenberg comes from the Hotel Amigo in Brussels, Belgium. The hotel building dates back to the early 16th century when the Spanish misunderstood the word “amigo” and thought it was the Flemish word for “prison.” The building served as a prison for centuries. It’s located right in the heart of the Grand Place in the middle of Brussels’ historic center. Joining Peter Greenberg will be legendary hotelier Sir Rocco Forte with a front line report on the state of hospitality, and Belgian Chocolatier Laurent Gerbaud will discuss why chocolate dominates Belgium. Then there’s the Brussels Beer Project, and Founder Olivier de Brauwere explains why he started an urban beer project in a city already famous for its exceptional beer. Brussels Historian Roel Jacobs gives his special insight into the most iconic statue in Belgium: the peeing boy. Then we’ll get a report from American expat Chris Burns about what keeps him in Brussels. There’s all of this and more as Travel Today With Peter Greenberg comes from the Hotel Amigo in Brussels, Belgium.
