Most famed for beer, waffles and chocolate, a quick stroll down any city street proves there is much more to Brussels than meets the eye … and mouth. Hailed as one of the most international cities in the world, Belgium’s fascinating capital is home to the European Union, more than 90 museums, countless parks and a multitude of chic eateries and bars, all of which put their own cultural stamp on the city. In creative Brussels, architecture is everything. While the magnificence of the Grand Place contrasts with 1960’s concrete developments and the EU’s sleek glass facades, on a smaller scale even the city’s streets sport an opulence and one-of-a-kind feel the city is known for. Multicultural and creative at its core, quirky and quintessential Brussels lured distinguished artists like Magritte, Van Gogh and MC Escher to its region with ease. And hey, if it’s good enough for them, it’s definitely good enough for us.

  • Our tips for Brussels

    Our tips for Brussels
    • See the Magic Carpet. Every other year in August, over 100 gardeners assemble a giant floral puzzle spanning the cobbles of the Grand Place. With more than 600,000 flowers in total, this spectacle is a true showstopper.
    • Eat in an atom. CNN dubbed Brussel’s Atomium site as “Europe’s most bizarre building”. Bizarre or not, the building’s top level boasts panoramic views of Brussels, not to mention the great food on offer at Panoramic Restaurant.
    • Have your own Euro-trip. Brussels is the only place you can tour the whole of Europe in just a few hours. Visit Mini Europe, a miniature park where you’ll see all of the continent’s most famous monuments modelled to a scale of 1 to 25. Fun fact– Mini Europe’s Big Ben chimes at 4m high!

    Best Time To Visit If you're looking for cheaper flights and hotels, the best time to visit Brussels is during the off-peak seasons of March to May or September to October. For those with more funds, we recommend visiting Brussel’s during the summer months when the city is most exciting and (every other year) the Flower Carpet adorns the Grand Place.
    Getting Around Navigating Brussels old-world avenues can be testing. Here’s our travel breakdown of the best ways to find your way through Belgium’s capital.

    • Brussels has an efficient public transport system. Metro stations are marked with a large ‘M’ sign and all of the service announcements are made in Dutch, French, and English. There are four Metro lines listed as lines 1, 2, 5, and 6. Lines 3, 4 and 7 are tram services.
    • Covering all the tram and metro lines, a one-day travel pass will save you hassle and money during your tour of the city. Travel passes can be purchased from kiosks and the information windows at all of the key transport stations.
    Stay Safe It’s always important to apply caution and common sense during your travels. Keep these tips in tow so your trip can go off without a hitch…
    • In case of emergency, dial 112 for services.
    • Be careful of pickpockets in well-known tourist areas, and keep your belongings close to hand.
