Why go to Brussels

The historic and cosmopolitan city of Brussels is the perfect destination for a city break. It might be known as the decision-making heart (or should that be brain?) of Europe, but short breaks to Brussels can be filled with sightseeing, eating, drinking, partying or simply relaxing.

The capital of the European Union, Brussels is abuzz with political activity and home to impressive architecture, such as the European Parliament building. Consider a tour of this place, but other than that you can forget the city’s constitutional credentials and concentrate on the things that make city breaks in Brussels so popular.

The jewel in Brussels' crown is the centrally located Grand-Place. Medieval facades and ornamented rooftops on the enormous square compete for attention with statues of ever-so-important (and long gone) royalty, while adjacent chocolate and lace shops are as busy as the palatial embellishments. Following a warren of cobbled streets east takes you to the manicured gardens of the Parc de Bruxelles, or hop aboard Brussels' clanging city trams for a quick glimpse of the flea markets and down-to-earth cafés of the Marolles district.

It’s easy to get to the capital of Belgium from the UK. A direct Eurostar service runs from London and two airports serve the city. Fly into either Brussels Airport (BRU) or South Charleroi Airport (CRL). From Brussels Airport, the Brussels Airport Express trains whisk travellers to the city's North, Central and Midi stations in just 16 minutes. Taxis are also available outside the arrivals terminal to take you where you want to be.

Getting around on weekend breaks to Brussels is also easy. In terms of public transport, the efficient tram and Metro systems connect central Brussels to all of its surrounding suburbs. Central Brussels is compact, its chief attractions and shopping districts located within a few blocks. If you want to save cash, explore the city on foot. The city is also well equipped with bike lanes, and bikes can be hired at Central Station, so there's really no excuse not to cycle.

To find your ideal Brussels city break, in a hotel that matches your style and budget, use the search tool on TravelSupermarket to compare prices on short breaks.
