The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bruges (The Markt, Belfry of Bruges, & more). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Grand Place, explore the world behind art at Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, see the interesting displays at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), and get a sense of history and politics at Justice Palace (Palais de Justice).

To see more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Brussels trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Brussels Airport, Antwerp International Airport (Deurne), Brussels South Charleroi Airport and Liège Airport. In May, daytime highs in Brussels are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
