Looking for ideas for family outings? Good news, all year round, Brussels offers tons of exciting activities! 

Whether you are on your own, with your brother or sister or part of a large family, and whether there is rain or sunshine, Brussels remains an inexhaustible source of activities for children. The city has lots in store for all tastes and ages: activities, discoveries, exhibitions, shows... Parents will have plenty of choice to keep their kids busy, to introduce them to art and see them making beautiful discoveries!  

In early spring, circuses, shows and children's activities take over the streets and parks of the city. Brussels has its playful activities at the Iris Festival, and the multi-coloured Zinneke Parade; while Sortilège, the medieval adventure game, will immerse young and old in a fantastic medieval experience. 

Enjoy summer by taking a relaxing break with your children. Take them to the beach at Bruxelles les Bains, or to one of the countless playgrounds in the many parks Brussels has to offer. 

In autumn, a perfect antidote to cure the autumn blues is the Brussels Comic Strip Festival. Or Bruxelles Champêtre, where the countryside takes over the city. And beware of the Halloween witches, who take out their broomsticks in the 4 corners of the capital. 

And in winter: let us stay warm on the carousels, the Ferris wheel, and the ice rink with lots of hot chocolate, all the pleasures of the Winter Wonders!  

Discover a selection of must-see events for the whole family in Brussels throughout the year, on your agenda!
