Flights to Brussels

Brussels has undergone a true transformation in the years since 1992, when it became the capital of the European Union (EU). During these changes, old buildings were replaced by more modern architecture and the EU brought money to the city. Flights to Brussels became more and more popular, and today the city is a top tourist destination.

The heart of Brussels life – its cafe and bar culture – is still very much alive, and it’s one of the best things about the city. And while Brussels is home to world-class art galleries and museums, some of the best art can be spotted on the walls and buildings that you pass on your way – the Tintin murals in particular are a Brussels specialty.

Dining in Brussels is a delight too. Belgian food relies heavily on rich ingredients like cream and pate, which makes it a gastronomic paradise and a place to indulge (and not count calories). Belgian cooking is some of the best in the world, and in fact Brussels has more Michelin stars (per head) than Paris.

Whilst the best restaurants in Brussels are mostly Belgian, there are some good alternatives around the Grand Place, which is home to a number of small Middle Eastern, Turkish and Greek places where you can fill up for a few euros. Yet simply picking up a paper wrap of frites (French fries), liberally drizzled with mayonnaise, to munch on while you explore the sights is a simple pleasure that should be repeated daily while you’re visiting.

There's a wide range of hotels in Brussels, from the cheap and cheerful to the ultra-luxurious. A number of boutique and design hotels are available too, so there's something to suit all tastes and budgets.

More and more accommodation options are opening all the time, reflecting the growing popularity of a city that draws you in with its abundant nightlife, world-class cuisine and relaxed cafe culture. Try to spend at least a few days here – you’ll be surprised at how much there is to enjoy.

What to do in Brussels

Explore the Brussels Comic Book Museum

Belgians’ love affair with art doesn’t end with Magritte – Tintin is a nationally beloved creation, and this museum, housed in a Victor Horta-designed Art Nouveau building, does full justice to the comic strip. Also known as the Comics Art Museum, it’s not just for kids either – it’s for anyone who’s ever enjoyed the funny pages.

Indulge in Belgian chocolate

It would be unthinkable to visit Brussels without sampling the local chocolate, and the area around the Grand Sablon (a square near the Mont des Arts district) is home to eight different chocolatiers. Sample treats from Leonidas, Passion and Pure and, if you’re feeling generous, buy some to bring home as gifts.

The Atomium

This unique building dates back to the 1950s. It’s modelled on the structure of an atom, and there are eight levels spread out over five levels. The Atomium was originally built for the World Fair in Brussels in 1958 and today it houses a number of cool permanent and temporary exhibitions.

Where to eat in Brussels

In't Spinnekopke (Belgian)

An inexpensive place to sample some classic Belgian dishes, this restaurant’s menu is heavy on meat and cheese and also does a tempting selection of mussels. It’s got an appealing retro vibe, with tiled floors and wooden tables.

Chez Franz (International)

All brass, glass and wood, as befits a proper brasserie, Chez Franz is worth heading to residential Chatelain for. Sit on the terrace and have a few snacks among the neighbourhood’s chic denizens – the weekend brunches are especially popular.

30 Avenue du Haut-Pont

+32 2 347 4212

BarBeton (International)

BarBeton is one of a handful of modern restaurants located in trendy Rue Antoine Dansaert. It’s a chic little place with wooden shelves (giving it a homey feel) in a nice location on a rapidly gentrifying corner.

Places to stay in Brussels

Aloft Brussels

The Aloft chain comes from the W Hotel group and it’s a cheaper alternative that’s well worth checking out. The Brussels hotel is good value, with loft-inspired rooms, excellent beds, shared public spaces, a gym, and oversized walk-in showers. It's a good choice for a young couple.

Place Jean Rey 3

The Dominican

The Dominican stands on a site that was once a 15th century abbey, and that history resonates through the stellar design aesthetic, which you could describe as ‘medieval modern’. The rooms are a good size, and they come with Wi-Fi, Nespresso machines and spacious showers.

Hotel Amigo

With a great location on a quiet street just behind the Grand Place, the Hotel Amigo has warm rooms and suites decorated with beautiful fabrics and ceramics. In the bathrooms you’ll find Tintin prints, and there's also the option to book yourself into the Tintin suite if you’re a super-fan.
