Explore Brussels

The capital of Belgium, Brussels is a highlight of Western Europe. Start your day with a spot of people watching in Grand Place (Grote Markt), Brussels’ central square and its most popular tourist attraction. Next, walk the short distance to take in the somewhat bizarre Manneken Pis, where a urinating child is immortalized in bronze – you never know what outfit the statue will be wearing. Then, head for the highest sphere of the Atomium, and take in the incredible city views. On a clear day, you might even see all the way to Antwerp. If all that sightseeing has worked up an appetite, you’re in luck – Brussels’ food is a tourist attraction in itself. You can’t go past a steaming bowl of moules frites (mosselen frieten in Flemish), washed down with a glass of Belgium’s famous beer, whether gueuze (sour) or kriek (sweet.) For a delicious finish, try some of the world’s best chocolate from Neuhaus, Pierre Marcolini or Wittamer on Place du Grand Sablon-Grote Zavel Plein. If you choose self-catering Brussels accommodation, you can also take advantage of the city’s excellent food markets. By stocking up on fresh gourmet produce, not only will you save money on dining out, you’ll get a true taste of local Brussels life.

When to go to Brussels

Brussels is a great year round holiday destination. While the weather is undoubtedly at its best in summer, late spring and early autumn, winter means less tourist crowds and the delight of Brussels’ beautiful Christmas Markets.

Getting to and around Brussels

Most tourists arrive in Brussels via flights to the city’s two airports, Brussels Airport and Brussels South Charleroi Airport. You can also catch a train to Brussels, including the high speed Eurostar. Once in Brussels, the city is easily explored on foot, with most tourist attractions within walking distance of each other. There is also a good public transport system, including buses, trams and the metro.
