The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Atomium and Musical Instruments Museum (MIM). Get outdoors at Sonian Forest and Domaine de Palogne. There's still lots to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, take in the exciting artwork at BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts, contemplate the long history of Grand Place, and admire the masterpieces at René Magritte Museum.

To find other places to visit, reviews, maps, and tourist information, read Brussels trip itinerary maker tool.

Dublin, Ireland to Brussels is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of ferry and train; or take a bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Dublin to Brussels. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Dublin in December: highs in Brussels hover around 7°C, while lows dip to 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) so you can go by car to Bruges.
