Whether you’re looking for luxury apartments in Brussels city centre or a bohemian bolthole in a more up and coming neighbourhood, there are plenty of accommodation options in Brussels. Read our guide on where to stay in Brussels for some ideas. The central area around the Grand Place is a good place to stay if you’re planning on doing lots of sightseeing as you’re right in the heart of the city. Avenue Louise is the place to stay if your loved one is a bit of a shopaholic. This is the best place for luxury fashion in the city. We also love the central district of Ixelles with its galleries and book shops.
Brussels is a lovely city to explore on foot, so put on some comfy shoes and get ready to get your step count up. There are lots of brilliant museums in Brussels which are well worth visiting. There are in fact, over 90 museums in the city, so you’re spoiled for choice. If you’re thinking of treating someone to a trip to Brussels for Christmas, you could wait until spring for the actual visit. The city is beautiful in March, April and May and there are lots of things to do in Brussels in the spring.
So you’ve bought your loved one to Brussels, now you can treat them to dinner at one of the most romantic restaurants in Brussels. Attentive service, cosy corners and delicious food will make for a memorable evening.
Belgium is famous for its chocolate, and Brussels is crammed with amazing chocolate shops. Seek out the best ones for sweet treats and inventive recipes.
Ok, so it’s not technically food, but drinking beer is basically a national sport in Belgium, so no weekend here would be complete without visiting some of the best beer bars in Brussels. While there are lots of traditional cafes left in the city that serve timeless brews, a whole host of more modern bars have opened in recent years, jumping on the craft ale trend and using local micro breweries to please the beer enthusiasts. From tourist favourites to trendy hangouts for Brussels natives and expats, you’re guaranteed to find a beer bar you love in this city.
Still not sure what to get them? The All Luxury Apartments Christmas gift guide is full of wonderful ideas. If they’re a fan of the outdoors, treat them to some fresh alpine air during an All Luxury weekend in Switzerland or on a luxury beach holiday in St. Bart’s. Or if city breaks are more their vibe, then a winter weekend in London or a shopping trip to Paris should tick their boxes. You could even combine two trips in one and take the train from Brussels to Amsterdam.
