The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Bruges (The Markt, Carpentier-Goegebeuer, & more). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Atomium, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), have some family-friendly fun at VirtualRoom - Virtual Reality Brussels, and make a trip to Belgian Comic Strip Center.

To see reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Brussels day trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Brussels Airport, Antwerp International Airport (Deurne), Brussels South Charleroi Airport and Liège Airport. In December in Brussels, expect temperatures between 43°F during the day and 35°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
