The city of Brussels serves as the centerpiece for Belgium's rich history and culture. The Grand Place, which is the city's central square, is surrounded by architectural masterpieces such as Town Hall, and the Museum of the City of Brussels. You can also head to the Botanic Gardens and Brussels Park to see beautiful forms of plant life on display. Take in some of the city's most exquisite art pieces, by spending a day at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
The compact size of Brussels makes it easy to find hotels in all price ranges within the city center. Metro trains, trams and buses are available to take you to wherever you need to go, once you arrive at Brussels Airport (BRU). The neighborhood known as Les Marolles is one of the best places to travel to if you want to experience the true nature of the city.
Whether you choose to visit Brussels during the mild winter season or pleasantly warm summer, you will always find opportunities to partake in local festivities. Enjoy ice skating and outdoor laser shows during the Christmas Market celebration. The Grand Place is carpeted in colorful flowers when the biennial Flower Market takes place. You will have the chance to indulge in Belgian chocolates and waffles, after completing the Brussels Marathon held every autumn.
