The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Brussels is known for historic sites, museums, nightlife, shopping, and theme parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the galleries of Atomium, see the interesting displays at Belgian Comic Strip Center, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and browse the different shops at Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.

To see reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Brussels trip planner.

Windsor, Canada to Brussels is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Windsor to Brussels due to the time zone difference. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Windsor in May: high temperatures in Brussels hover around 19°C and lows are around 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Thu) so you can take a train to Bruges.
