Brussels, the unofficial political capital of Europe, has more to it than diplomats darting between meetings – you can gawp at the Grand Palace, hit the brasseries for garlicky mussels, bargain hunt at the Jeu de Balle flea market and, of course, guzzle down chocolate. Whether you’re coming for just a weekend, or long enough to explore the hidden corners of the city, an Airbnb-style stay lets you experience it like a local. To help you out, we’ve picked the best vacation apartments in Brussels – and they’re all bookable on Culture Trip.
Nestled in the trendy area of Châtelain, this apartment has a charming bohemian vibe. Guests of this Airbnb are welcomed into a living room adorned with gorgeous vintage furniture, an open-plan kitchen and a renovated bathroom. Suitable if you’re looking to stay in a lively neighbourhood, the apartment is close to the Michel Rein gallery, the Horta Museum and many restaurants, bars and cafes.
If you’ve ever loved a piece of furniture in an Airbnb so much you wished you could take it home, look no further than this Brugmann Quarter apartment. The spacious pad is filled with custom-made furniture that comes with a price tag; just purchase the pieces that catch your eye. In the bedroom, folding wooden doors let in plenty of morning light, highlighting the chic furnishings and black feature wall.
