Brussels is the perfect city for holidays with family and friends, or even with colleagues as a team-building event. There is a lot to learn about the history of the city, the architecture, the Belgian obsession with comic strips, and the art of chocolate and beer.

Getting to Brussels is quite easy; Brussels airport and Charleroi airport both welcome cheap flights; there are high-speed trains from London, Paris and Amsterdam, an intercity train network that can bring you from all over Europe; and you can even get here by ferry!

Brussels travel is cheap compared to London and Paris, with a touch of charm and elegance. Hotel accommodation includes luxury hotels, star-rated hotels, hostels and apartments for rent. Hotels can be booked online before you arrive at very reasonable prices.

In the city, public transport is easy to use; a great tip is to find the nearest metro stops on a Brussels map before you book accommodation. This way, you can easily reach the city centre and main tourist attractions. Hop-on hop-off buses are also available and travel passes are included with a museum pass (called the Brussels Card).

Before travelling, check the Brussels weather forecast; bring a fold up umbrella and a good pair of walking shoes!
