Family friendly travelling in Brussels

Most popular areas in Brussels for family-friendly hotels

Belgium’s picturesque capital is as beguiling and family-friendly as the more obviously tourist-centric destinations like Bruges and Ghent. You can make the most of your stay by picking one of the comfortable hotels situated in the historic heart, steps away from the atmospheric buzz of the Grand Place. Alternatively, you can get a taste of local life by picking a hotel in bohemian Ixelles, with its array of eateries and independent shops, while the vibrant Saint-Josse-ten-Noode district is also a good choice for finding a home away from home.

Top family-friendly hotels in Brussels

Kids and adults alike will be wowed as soon as they step inside the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel. Behind the Art Deco exterior, you’ll find a towering, glass-roofed atrium area with tiers of greenery and places to sit and relax. The rooms are also spacious and comfortable, coming with free WiFi. Just as impressive is The Hotel, which is set within a glinting skyscraper, and where the views over Brussels are an added perk. Then there’s the Hilton Brussels Grand Place, where the regal lobby and elegant guestrooms will make your family feel like pampered VIPs.

Where to find the best restaurants in Brussels

When it comes to grabbing a bite with your family, your first instinct may be to seek out the many eateries of the Grand Place quarter. And with good reason, because here you can find everything from mussels and fries to sugar-glazed waffles draped with cream and chocolate. But it’s also well worth exploring further, with the Sablon district also known for its range of restaurants serving up traditional Belgian and French dishes. For warming ramen noodles, flame-grilled burgers, and tongue-tingling Taiwanese grub in casual surroundings, head for the European Quarter.

The most popular things to do in Brussels

One of the most striking family attractions in Brussels is the Atomium, a gleaming, retro-futuristic collection of vast, stainless steel spheres which loom over the landscape like a vision from a sci-fi film. Built back in the 1950s but revamped since then, it features engrossing exhibits within the spheres, as well as panoramic views to relish. Elsewhere in Brussels, visit the Belgian Comic Strip Center, which is set within one of trailblazing architect Victor Horta’s Art Nouveau buildings. Here, you’ll be taken through the history of the comic strip, with special exhibits on iconic characters like Tintin. Kids and adults of all ages will adore the Manneken Pis, that famous statue of a little boy cheekily weeing into a fountain basin. It’s a symbol of the city, but check out his lesser-known female counterpart, the Jeanneke Pis, as well.

Best ways to get around Brussels

You’ll probably want to spend a good amount of your holiday in Brussels simply exploring the historic center on foot. But there may be times when you feel like going further afield, and that’s when the sleek and efficient public transport comes into play. The city is well served by a subway system, while above ground you can easily hop on the buses and trams to get from A to B in no time at all.
