Brussels

Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Venture out of the city with trips to St-Martin's Basilica (in Halle), Antwerp (St. George Church of Antwerp, Museum De Reede, &more) and Mechelen (Vismarkt, Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-over-de-Dijlekerk, &more). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, make a trip to Atomium, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), and see the interesting displays at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM).

Plan my Brussels trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Bengaluru, India to Brussels is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time (IST) to Central European Standard Time (CET) is minus 4.5 hours.

Belgium travel guide

4.2
Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Monuments
A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
