The city offers endless activities and its size allows you to enjoy the best of the big cities along with the charm of small, quiet towns with pedestrian areas, parks and a family friendly atmosphere. And that's because not only the city is friendly, Belgian people, although at first, as a general rule, can come across as a bit cold- are actually quite friendly, willing to meet the visitor. Brussels is one of those places that slowly gets into people’s hearts, and then you have a hard time leaving it behind... a really hard time!
Brussels has the typical northern European weather. Winters are usually very cold with grey days and temperatures that rarely reach 10 degrees. In summer the temperature is warm, reaching 20 degrees. Therefore, the heat never becomes overwhelming. It doesn't matter when you choose you go, you won’t escape the rain, as rainfall is common throughout the year.
When to go
From May to September it is the best time to go in order to take advantage of the good weather because this is when the temperatures are more pleasant. Even so, during these months the capital is full of tourists. Winter is a good choice to get cheaper rates and enjoy yourself a little more, this of course if you have no problem withstanding low temperatures.
