Brussels weekend breaks
Relaxing weekend breaks in Brussels, the perfect romantic short stay holidays. With the new Eurostar rail link from London, St Pancras, now open it takes less than 2 hours to reach Brussels city center. City breaks in Brussels should include the traditional Sunday morning bird market and for great city views climb
to the top of alien looking Atomium. See the Royal Palace and Brussels Cathedral but don't forget the obligatory photo of the Mannekin Pis! No long weekend in Brussels is complete without a visit to the gothic Grand Place, one of the most beautiful city squares in Europe, both for sightseeing during the day and also at night to dine in one of the exquisite restaurants. If good food is important to you then Brussels is the place to go, restaurants are generally superb, even taking a break from holiday sightseeing
and popping into a humble corner cafe should not disappoint. Brussels is famous for chocolate to die for (cheap compaired to UK prices) and Belgian beer will give you a taste of what real ale should be (take care, it's strong!)
Brussels flights land at Brussels International, a short 20 minute train ride from the city, trains depart approx every 15 mins. The other airport is Brussels South (Charleroi) which is an approx 1hr bus trip to the city center.
