in Belgium

What we liked about it

here’s just a few ideas….

Reason one

What’s our main tip for families? Access to the city is best via the fantastic tram system. If you have younger children, why not head for the Mini Europe attraction (outskirts of city) and then take the tram system into the impressive Central Square… maybe even spare some time for the brilliant comic museum too (if you like a little tintin)

Reason two

There are lots of children specific activities in Brussels, especially designed to capture their imagination. We only encountered a few but as it is not as big or bustling as London or Madrid, you can pretty much get around the city in 2 days. We found more activities on the outskirts but that’s not to say you can’t find others in the city centre (but the parking is certainly better on the outskirts)

Still not convinced? Here’s another one:

Reason three

It’s a fantastic city to explore… but if you have kids, don’t miss taking them to the Central Square, but just be warned, you’ll have to prise them away. Brussels itself, just seems to works just that little bit harder to enchant you. But time it right, and you can also get some fantastic seasonal events like the biennial ‘Carpet of Flowers

Ever wanted to pack your bags, just jump in a motorhome and go off and explore Europe as a family? Well, that’s exactly what my family has done since September 2015. Visiting 35 European countries, travelling over 54,000 miles and grabbing over 450 family experiences on the way… enjoying Bobsleigh in Norway, Climbing into Mt Etna in Sicily or Kayaking the River Dordogne.
