The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Groeningemuseum and Royal Palace of Brussels. Appreciate the collections at Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique and MIM - Musical Instruments Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Brussels: Antwerp (Cathedral of Our Lady & Sint-Annastrand), Ghent (Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle), Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve, & more) and Bruges (Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, Jerusalem Chapel & Adornes Domain, & more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Atomium, contemplate the long history of Grand Place, get engrossed in the history at Museum of the City of Brussels (Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles), and buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.

To find more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Brussels trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Brussels Airport, Antwerp International Airport (Deurne), Brussels South Charleroi Airport and Liège Airport. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in July, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
