    Flights to Brussels

    As the home of the European Parliament, one of the most striking things about Brussels is how multicultural, dynamic and open the city is.

    The Belgian capital is full of life, and you’ll find lots of things to do, no matter your interests. From the history and art that fill its many museums, to the beer and bars that make its nightlife famous, the city has an energy and atmosphere that makes it the perfect weekend getaway destination.

    Book your flights with Brussels Airlines today to explore the capital of Europe!

    What to do in Brussels?

    1. Visit the Grand Place. This iconic square is full of gold-gilt buildings and awe-inspiring architecture, making it one of the city’s top attractions. Located in the heart of the city centre, it’s always full of people relaxing, enjoying a drink, or watching one of the many street performances that take place there.
    2. Go to the Delirium café. If you want to see Brussels’ nightlife at its best, this huge collection of bars and nightclubs is the place to be. Sprawling along an entire alley, this basement bar is the perfect place to try one of 2000 or more beers, whilst a visit to the tequila bar will have you dancing all night.
    3. Visit one of Brussels’ many parks. The city enjoys great weather in the summer, so where better to relax than in one of the huge green spaces in the heart of the city? The Parc de Bruxelles, Parc Leopold or Parc de Cinquantenaire offer beautiful views and peaceful surroundings.
    4. Manneken Pis, or the ‘Lil’ Piddler’, is one of the most iconic images of Brussels. The fountain, which shows a young boy urinating, is said to pay testament to the light-hearted and independent spirit of the Brussels population.
    5. Brussels Atomium
    6. See the Atomium, an impressive structure made up of nine huge, stainless steel spheres. As well as seeing the building itself, you can also visit the exhibit halls and galleries inside, or take in the sights of Mini-Europe, the park of miniature European landmarks that sits at its foot.
    7. Head to the European Quarter to see the beating heart of the European Union, including landmarks such as the Parliament and Commission buildings. It’s also a great opportunity to brush up on your European knowledge with a visit to the Parlamentarium and other European museums.
    8. Take a day trip to Bruges or Ghent. Just a short train journey from the Bruxelles-Midi train station, Bruges and Ghent offer a different, more historic side to Belgium that should not be missed.

    Practical information for your trip to Brussels

    • Thank you – Merci –Dank u

    The weather in Brussels is usually warmest in summer, with average temperatures usually above 20 °C from the end of May to September. If you’re looking for sunshine, this is the best time to go to Brussels. The city is also a popular winter destination, thanks to its Christmas markets and festive charm.

    What to eat in Brussels?

    Belgium is famous for its many delicacies, so make sure to try as many as you can:

    • Waffles – Topped with fruit, ice cream, chocolate, and anything else you can imagine, this sweet treat cannot be missed.

    • Belgian chocolate – Not only is the chocolate delicious, but making it is a true art worth admiring in the many chocolate shops.

    Belgium? It's the entire world on just 31,000 km2.

    Belgium has it all: the sea and mountains (well, they are actually hills), exquisite gastronomy and fantastic fries, Congolese rhythms and Belgian dance music, medieval art and revolutionary architecture. And what is truly unique is that all these wonderful things are located less than an hour's travel of one another!

    Antwerp, the capital of cool

    Antwerp is a city of trendsetters - as it has always been. You'll find the city's style reflected in its architecture (check out the railway station and the Port House!), its museums (oh, the MAS with its 360° panoramic views, and the stylish art at Museum Mayer van den Bergh!) and even in the food on your plate. Where else would a Michelin-starred chef open a deluxe fries stand? That's right, in the beautiful city on the river Scheldt.

    More about Antwerp

    Creativity has always been an inherent part of Antwerp. In the 16th and 17th century, Antwerp was home to great masters such as Rubens and Anthony Van Dyck. In the 20th and 21st century, the city has been an inspiration to famous fashion designers such as Dries Van Noten and Walter van Beirendonck. Aside from the cultural agenda, the city is well worth a visit for its excellent restaurants, bars and clubs. And of course for shopping: retail stores are also open on each first Sunday of the month. Much like Antwerp diamonds, the city sparkles with an impressive range of architecture from medieval buildings to Art Nouveau townhouses and the beautiful contemporary MAS or "Museum Aan de Stroom" ("Museum at the river").

    Our suggestions:

    • EAT While at De Koninck city brewery, visit one of the on-site establishments. Chocolatier Jitsk makes sweet creations that are appreciated the world over. Cheese ripeners Van Tricht have a shop there and meatlovers will enjoy the Butcher's Store. Add a bakery, a bike store and a place to enjoy a freshly tapped 'Bolleke' and you have all you need.
    • SHOP In Belgium's most sartorial city, fashion stores are everywhere. To find the best of Antwerp fashion, start at the Nationalestraat and move your way towards Het Zuid (South district).

    Ghent, Belgium's hipster capital

    What makes Ghent so special? That's easy: the unique combination of respectable old and rebellious new! You can exit the medieval Castle of the Counts (Gravensteen) head straight into a museum of contemporary art (SMAK), or stroll through experimental graffiti street to stately St. Bavo's Cathedral (Sint-Baafskathedraal) that houses the Ghent Altarpiece (except for that one stolen panel, of course). Here, you can tuck into some trendy haute dogs and finish off with a few authentic, sweet Ghent neuzekes, a cone shaped candy also called cuberdons. According to Lonely Planet, Ghent is 'Europe's best-kept secret' - we couldn't agree more!

    More about Ghent

    "Here's a secret within a secret: Ghent might just be the best European city you've never thought of visiting, in a country that continues to be criminally overlooked." - Lonely Planet. If you're the type who prefers exploring away from the tourist hordes, funky Ghent is definitely the place to go.

    Ghent is praised for its brilliant mix of a rich history and a vibrant present. Here hides one of Europe's finest panoramas of water, spires and centuries-old grand houses. But this is no place to simply kick back. It's also Flanders' biggest university town, which means linger-as-long-as-you-like cafés, well-priced restaurants and a laid-back atmosphere. Under the watchful eye of Gravensteen Castle (a.k.a. Castle of the Counts), the city boasts an Opera House, 18 museums, 100 churches and over 400 historical buildings.

    The most visited site in Ghent is the famous polyptych, The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, also known as the Ghent Altarpiece, painted by the brothers Jan and Hubert van Eyck in 1432. It still shines in its original location, the St. Bavo Cathedral. The locals, while intensely proud of their city, are very modest and would never brag about its merits. That might be one of the reasons why it has taken so long for the rest of the world to discover this unique gem.

    Our suggestions:

    • EAT Enjoy gastronomy in a 16th century chapel at Holy Food Market (Beverhoutplein 15). Stop by for delicious street food; there are plenty of vegetarian options in the veggie capital of Europe!
    • SHOP Looking for unique vintage finds? Around the Vrijdagmarkt you'll find plenty of little shops, each with their own retro vibe.
    • LATER Sip inventive cocktails at the timeless cocktail bar Jigger’s (Oudburg 16). Allow yourself to be pleasantly surprised with a mix of local and homemade products.

    Bruges, the capital of heritage

    The heart of Bruges, surrounded by an almost continuous ring of canals, is the best preserved example of medieval Flanders. The city centre is so picture perfect, that it is nigh on impossible to take a bad photograph. All the stunning beauty and culture of this unforgettable city can be easily explored on foot, by boat ride along quiet canals, or by horse-drawn carriage over cobblestone streets. Although Bruges is a small city, it will easily take more than one day to explore all of its architectural and artistic treasures, folklore, chocolate shops, lace boutiques, and local restaurants.

    More about Bruges

    The historic centre of Bruges is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is teeming with places of interest. Bruges is so magical that it's akin to a film set. This seems appropriate given that the 2008 film In Bruges was filmed on location in the city. This film, starring Ralph Fiennes and Colin Farrell, features two hit men holing up in the city after a difficult job. During Bruges’ Golden Age, the 15th century, the fine arts prevailed. In the wake of the prestigious Burgundian dynasty, the great Flemish Primitives made a name for themselves. The world-renowned works of Jan Van Eyck, Hans Memling and those of other prominent Flemish Masters can be admired at the Groeninge Museum, St John’s Hospital, St Saviour’s Cathedral and the Church of Our Lady.

Furniture by Hay, accessories with a Scandinavian or Belgian twist, quality retro designs and mini gadgets you can treat yourself or others to. Optiek Hoet (Vlamingstraat 19): No trendy look, whether it's that of a designer, advertiser or woman in the media, is complete without Hoet glasses. This is the place for Hoet’s own design classics. Fashion for trendsetters. Popular the world over, but with its cradle in Bruges.

    Tournai, the capital of views

    With its 2000 years of history, Tournai is the oldest city in Belgium. Its two most impressive monuments? The belfry and the Cathedral, listed as UNESCO world heritage. But that's not all: the city is also full of many other architectural treasures that can be easily explored by foot: Romanesque, Gothic and Louis XIV houses, the Museum of fine arts in Art Nouveau style with its beautiful collection of Impressionist painters... Its major asset: conviviality linked to its human scale. You can quietly stroll on the renovated waterfront of the Scheldt, follow one of the circuits proposed by the Tourism Office, taste local specialities like real ales, Belgian fries, rabbit à la Tournaisienne, Clovis cake... and why not, party with the locals because there always is an occasion.

    Ostend, trendy seaside fun

    This ‘City by the Sea’, boasts over five-and-a-half miles of sandy beaches, perfect for sunbathing and a refreshing dip in the North Sea. After frolicking in the sun, take a walk down the promenade where you’ll find many fantastic shops, bars and restaurants. As a cosmopolitan city, you’ll find plenty to do across the harbour, yacht-basin, and at incredible year-round activities like the Christmas Market or the phenomenal Theatre by the Sea. One of Ostend's main, though perhaps lesser known, attractions is gastronomy. Where better place to sample the ocean’s delicacies than at the seaside? Choose from high-end restaurants to cosy bistros, but make sure to order specialities such as Dover Sole, shrimp croquettes and tomate crevette (tomatoes filled with shrimps).

    More about Ostend

    Our suggestions:

    • EAT Traditionalists eat mussels only from September to April, and the busy De Mosselbeurs (Dwarstraat 10) serves up more than a dozen versions, from basic to Thai-style, spiced with coconut, curry and coriander. Otherwise head down to Ostend Queen (Westhelling 12), where you'll feel like you've stepped aboard a cruise liner that serves excellent seafood.
    • SHOP Stock up on local delicacies at the outdoor market on the Wapenplein every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
    • LATER Choose from 500 types of beer and 50 kinds of genever (a Belgian juniper-flavoured spirit) at the English pub-style Café Botteltje (Louisastraat 19) or throw shapes on the dancefloor at Tao Bar (Langestraat 24-26).
