Brussels is the capital of Belgium and offers a variety of activities for a weekend trip. The city is most famous for beer and politics but it has many other charms. Brussels is clean, safe and well organised and offers a vast choice of accommodation.
With the choice of flying, taking a coach or the train, getting to Brussels has never been easier. Offering a great mix of culture, relaxation and history Brussels holidays are becoming increasingly popular. Over 1 million people inhabit the city where the European parliament has its headquarters. The vast majority of restaurants and tourist attractions speak English and everywhere has a really international feel. The city is a year round destination with many great festivals held over the summer months. Brussels is easily navigated on foot, bus or with the clean and efficient metro. Brussels is in the central European time zone (GMT+1).
Highlights of holidays in Brussels include the Magritte Museum, which has over 200 drawings, paintings, sculptures and musical scores right in the heart of the city and the unique Atomium, an enlarged iron crystal which is illuminated at night and features a restaurant at the top with magnificent views. At the same location is the fun Mini-Europe, where you can enjoy scenes enacted in a miniaturised model of Europe. The Natural Sciences Museum is another must see attraction and ideal for kids.
The city feels spacious and has many parks. Warandepark occupies the space between the Royal Palace of Brussels and the Belgian Parliament and hosts free parties most weekends in the summer. A holiday in Brussels would not be complete without trying a beer or two and a visit to La Becasse or The Lark is reccomended to try a jaune lambic blanc, a delicious white beer served in a stone jug.
