July starts off with a bang in Brussels by with a weekend full of awesome cultural events, exhibitions and outdoor festivals. Whether you’re looking to check out an new pop-up bar, dance the night away at a festival or simply soak up some sun in the city, Culture Trip Brussels has got it covered.

FRIDAY, JULY 1 


FOOD | Check Out Bar Eliza In Koekelberg 

This summer the small commune of Koekelberg gives residents another reason to come visit other than for its mighty Basilica.

EVENT | Soak Up The Summer Sun At Brussels Beach

Not having its own natural beach but unwilling to miss out on all the fun, Brussels has found a clever way to treat its visitors and inhabitants to the highlights we associate with summer.
