Autumn in Belgium: Vacation in Brussels

Friday Sep 18, 2015

Autumn in Belgium Brussels

When the leaves start to change color and fall gracefully from the trees, that’s when you should be thinking about a trip to Belgium. Autumn in Belgium is one of the most romantic and peaceful times, particularly in the bigger city of Brussels. Not only this, but in the autumn months, which usually start in September and finish at the end of October, a vacation in Brussels will also be considerably cheaper. Escape the summer crowds, peak summer prices and the summer heat of the city by traveling to Brussels during autumn.

Known as the “Capital of Europe,” Brussels is a city that is very manageable and also very exciting. Defined visually by its medieval architecture, impressive collection of museums, and fusion cuisine, the small city is extremely walkable and can be explored at a relaxing pace during this season.

 

Try out some of these activities in Brussels during your vacation:

People watch at the Grand Place

Vacation in Brussels Grand Place

In the center of the city lies the historic Grand Place, the heart of the city and the one of the most ornate structures in Europe. Here you can people watch from a terrace cafe, sample an authentic Trappist ale, or even watch a free autumn concert or parade. You can also find the City Museum and the Town Hall in the Grand Place.

 

Visit Brussel’s many museums

Hop from one cultural museum to the next in Brussels. From the Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts to the Magritte Museum, Brussels is full of informative museums to rouse your interest in the city even further. Try out the unique Musee des Instruments de Musique, which features 1,500 instruments in a beautiful historic building, and one of the oldest museums in Brussels, Musee de la Ville de Bruxelles, which was opened in 1887 and is located in the “King’s House” in the Grand Place.

 

Eat Belgian food

Belgians are known for their ability to eat extremely well, and where better to test out that theory than in the capital city? With their French influences, as well as their own traditional flavors, finding a good meal in the city can be a little overwhelming. The historic institution Maison du Cygne, where Karl Marx drank and where the Belgian Socialist Party was organized, serves up traditional Belgian and French fare and is so popular that you’ll want to secure a reservation well in advance. The dessert selection in Belgium is equally tantalizing, with a variety of unique offerings including some of the most famous chocolatiers in the world. Before your trip is over, satisfy your sweet tooth and be sure to sample the amazing chocolate in Belgium.

 

Get to known Tintin

Belgian Art History Tintin

Created by Belgian comic Herge in 1929, Tintin is probably one of Belgium’s most famous exports aside from its specialist ales. The comic strip in Belgium is actually considered a very prominent and important art form. Often referred to as the “ninth art,” Tintin, the Smurfs, Willy and Wanda and many other world-famous comics were imagined by Belgian natives and you can see them all at the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinee, an Art Nouveau building turned museum.

 

Explore the Palais Royal

The autumn months are a great time to be outside. Not too hot or too cold, this season is a great time to visit the Palais Royal and the nearby Parc du Bruxelles. While the king doesn’t actually live in the palace, he sometimes visits, and if he is in town you will see the national flag flying outside. Explore the gardens and grounds, and if you are lucky enough you may be able to link up with one of the Palace’s free tours.
