As the capital of Belgium, the city of Brussels is a major hub for the country as well as the entire European Union. It would be easy to spend your entire city trip exploring what Brussels has to offer. Bustling outdoor markets, a stunning royal palace and more than a dozen fantastic museums set the scene, and a variety of breweries and shops ensure nonstop enjoyment. While visiting Brussels, don’t forget to soak up the culture outside of the city. These day trips from Brussels throughout Belgium, as well as the neighboring countries, are a wonderful way to see Europe.
