Best Time To Visit Brussels

The peak travel months to Brussels are during the months of May, August, October.

Brussels is Belgium’s capital and home to the European Union headquarters. The Grand-Place square at the heart of the city has shops and cafes inside ornate 17th-century guildhouses.

Colorful murals throughout Brussels share the stage with the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée, devoted to comic-strip art. The European Quarter contains the European Parliament building, dinosaur skeletons at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences. Built for a 1958 World’s Fair, the iconic Atomium offers panoramic views. South of the city, 14th-century Beersel Castle has steepled towers, a drawbridge and a moat.
