    The formalities for travelling to Brussels

    Entry requirements: Brussels, which is often presented as the capital of the European Union, is of course part of the Schengen Territories. This means you can travel there easily with just your passport or a valid ID card in your pocket or bag.
    Currency: you’ll be paying for your waffles in Euro.

    Your Nice-Brussels direct flight

    At Nice Airport, the departure terminal for Brussels depends on which company you’ll be flying with. With Brussels Airlines, Nice-Brussels takes off from Terminal 1, whereas a Nice-Brussels flight with easyJet leaves from Terminal 2.

    Don’t forget that security checks and boarding procedures take time. Arrive at the airport at least one hour before departure, and add an additional 15 minutes should you need to go to the airline counter to collect your ticket or check bags.

What to do in
Brussels ?

Leave the European Quarter to the suits! Spend time taking in incredible Gothic façades instead of glass buildings. Put on some comfortable shoes and get lost in Brussels! This beautiful city has much to offer, from parks to cobblestone streets, Art Nouveau to Art Deco buildings, grand master paintings to graphic novel sketches, from the fabulous chaos of the Jeu de Balle Flea Market in the Marolles district to the enticing smells emanating from the fritkots, Brussels famous chip stands, and so much more.

    Whether you go with family, friends, or that special someone, there’s always a child tagging along - your inner child, that is. This is why not matter how long you spend in the Belgian capital, you’ll get a true break from the routine, because Brussels has a way of awakening forgotten sensations and bringing you back to the simple pleasures of life. Simple pleasures like forgetting the words “calories” and “cholesterol” as you sink your teeth into a warm and sumptuous chocolate covered waffle. Or striking up spontaneous conversation over a Belgian beer in a bar that’s as picturesque as it is lively, where friendliness isn’t some long-forgotten word but a way of life. Or else the pleasure of coming across giant murals of Tintin or Billy & Buddy unexpectedly in the street, or laughing at the indecent Manneken Pis and Jeanneke, his little sister. Not to mention the joys of wandering the quiet streets of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, a city that knows how to blend the seriousness of culture with the carelessness of a good time.

  • The top 10 things to do in Brussels

    Voir plus Voir moins
    • Because first impressions are always the most important, start your visit off at the Grand Place. A wonder of life and architecture which Jean Cocteau called “the most splendid stage in the world”.
    • Go to see the Manneken Pis, whose reputation is as big as he is small: Barely 50 centimetres. Don’t be surprised if you find him clothed: he is constantly being adorned with costumes and disguises inspired by history and current events in the city.
    • Climb up the Atomium. At around 100 metres tall, it was inspired by the iron atom and is the “Eiffel Tower of Brussels”. And like the Eiffel Tower, it was constructed for a World Fair (in 1958) and was meant to be taken down afterwards.
    • Peruse the displays in the Saint-Hubert Royal Galleries, three passageways underneath a canopy of glass built in 1847. Pure pleasure for lovers of both style and gastronomy.
    • Visit some of the city's many museums: The Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts, the Musical Instruments Museum with its 7,000 piece collection - the largest of its kind in the world, the Magritte Museum, Autoworld with its 300-piece collection from sports cars to bangers, and many more.
    • Follow the Comic Strip Tour and take in all 60 giant murals around the city, or, for true connoisseurs, visit the iconic Belgian Comic Strip Centre.
    • See all of Europe in just a few hours at Mini-Europe, a park adorned with 350 models of cities and monuments of the Old-Continent, from the Tower of Pisa to the Sacré Coeur.
    • Sample some of the world’s best chocolate in the chocolatiers’ own boutiques: Pierre Marcolini, Jean Galler, Neuhaus, Wittamer or Belvas, an organic and eco-friendly chocolate maker.
    • Liven up your trip with a visit to a micro-brewery and sip a pintje (a half pint) in an estaminet, a type of traditional Belgian pub. Don’t miss Delirium Café, which has 2,000 beers on its menu. A record!
    • Sit back and listen to jazz and other good music at Archiduc, a Brussels institution created in 1937. Many a great artist has played there, including Nat King Cole. And the tradition continues today.

  • What is the best time of year to visit Brussels?

    We’re not going to lie to you: the sky is not always blue in Brussels. Winter can be a bit nippy. Then again, chocolate won’t melt all over your fingers, the estaminets are more welcoming than ever, the Grand Place is decorated for the holidays and museums are open all night during Museum Night Fever. Spring is delicious and colourful with the Iris Festival (a weekend of shows, balls and concerts all over the city) and the Zinneke Parade, an enormous cultural event held just as the weather warms up. Summer traditionally begins with the Ommegang, a large historical reconstruction that takes over the Grand Place and the streets of Brussels. It's full of music festivals and other activities, including Brussels Beach which, for seven weeks, turns the banks of the Brussels Canal into beaches, sports fields, giant fairs, dance floors, and open-air cinemas. Autumn is more subdued, and the perfect time for culture lovers to discover the city through its museums and by taking part in Museum Night Fever, Brussels's massive artistic event (in October).
