Discover Brussels

Europe’s greenest capital goes golden in the autumn. Stroll through the Promenade Verte, a 60km nature trail, to see the warm hues in full florescence. The 6-hectare Botanical Gardens are alive with 40 varieties of Iris, the symbol of the region, and the countless parks provide the perfect setting for a quiet picnic.

​Alternatively, go urban on a Street Art trail, with powerful, cultural work on display. Warm up in a cosy pub with a Belgian beer or pick up a waffle as you wander through the cobbled lanes, visiting the cheeky Manneken Pis or ogling in awe at the majesty of the Grand Place. ​
