There isn’t really a particularly popular time that you need to visit Brussels, with the capital receiving a steady influx of tourists throughout the year. The country of Belgium experiences a very similar climate to the UK, with not too perishing winters nor too intense summers. The winter and summer months are the best time to visit for anyone that relishes being around the city when it is busier, although the top attractions are usually busy too. Spring and autumn is the ideal time to see places without the queues, but the whole city itself is quieter.
The Grand Place in Brussels is without a doubt the top attraction to visit and should be towards the top of any visitor’s list.

The quirky Manneken Pis is one of the most famous sights in Brussels which features a bronze boy urinating into the fountain’s basin. The statue is apparently famous for embodying the sense of humour of the people of Brussels and their independence of mind. Mini-Europe is a small park and an awesome attraction to visit. Here, you get the chance to discover the whole of Europe in just a few hours in miniature form!
