Public transport in the Belgian capital
The Brussels metro is easily the best way to get around the city from the comfort of your apartment. Its network consists of 4 regular metro lines and 2 light rail lines. To get to the Atomium for example, you should take the lines 2 or 6, and to get to Brussels Park or the Cinquantenaire, use lines 1 and 5. The metro closes at midnight everyday, and from that time there are plenty of other alternatives such as the buses that run until 3 in the morning. There is also a city bicycle rental service which you can use, and taxis are the most expensive forms of transport in Europe, so we don’t recommend that you use them unless you have no other option available to get back home to your Brussels apartment.
How to get to Brussels
As for the best way to get to the city, if you’re going to catch a flight, you will surely arrive at Brussels airport which is the main and closest to the city centre. However low cost airlines fly to Charleroi Airport which isn’t too far from Brussels but you can catch a shuttle bus to the capital. You can also arrive by train from Amsterdam or Paris, or fly there directly from any major airport in Europe. The best time to travel to this city is undoubtedly in the summertime. During the months of May to September, the temperature is perfect: it is rarely too hot, without exceeding 25 degrees Celsius. During the winter months the temperature drops to 4 degrees Celsius, but it is also equally as fantastic to see Brussels at Christmas. The streets are filled with colourful lights and you can drink cups of hot Belgian chocolate and see the Grand Place illuminated or enjoy the charming Christmas markets in Brussels. In addition, there are plenty of apartments with fireplaces or jacuzzis depending on what you’re after.
Travel from Brussels to other cities
We recommend that you make a trip to another city in Belgium which is certainly worth your while to book more than one short-stay apartment.
- Bruges: To get to Bruges from Brussels, you can take the train which costs approximately € 14.30 and takes an hour or so to get there. Bruges is a medieval city with beautiful canals - it is very small but has a special charm that means more people choose to visit every year. It is a typical trip made when travelling to Belgium. The tower of Belfort is probably its most recognisable landmark.
- Ghent: To get from Brussels to Ghent you can choose to take the train or rent a car if you decide to do a larger tour. You have accommodation in Bruges, Ghent or Antwerp if you decide to spend the night in one of these incredible locations.
- Amsterdam: Another common trip is to go from Brussels to Amsterdam by train. Once there, you can look at apartments in Amsterdam for rent and split your trip between two equally brilliant destinations.
