Best Time to Visit

From June to August is the peak time of tourism in Brussels. The temperature hovers between mid-60s and mid-70s degree Fahrenheit. You should specially plan your vacation during the time, if you want to   witness the great events like Ommegang Pageant (June) and National Day (July 21). However, the season witnesses a colossal traffic, so automatically inflation swings into in terms of flight and hotel bookings.

If you want to avoid that, plan your vacation, either before the peak season, i.e. between March and May, or after it, i.e., September and October.
