Brussels is a relatively small city, so it’s very possible to see it all in one day. Here’s how to spend 24 hours in Brussels, Belgium.
Brussels is the beautiful capital city of Belgium. It’s also the capital of comic books, fries, beer, waffles, and of course, chocolate!
Walking through the city feels like magic. String lights hang above the cobblestone streets, and the plaza of the Grand-Place is striking.
Getting to Brussels
If you are already in Europe, getting to Brussels by train is a breeze. Otherwise, the two closest airports are Brussels Airport or Brussels South Charleroi Airport.
From Brussels Airport, it’s a thirty-minute drive or fifteen-minute metro ride into the city center.
From South Charleroi you can take a prearranged shuttle bus, which will take you right to the city center train station and takes a little over an hour.
