Updated on 28/01/2020

Brussels has many romantic addresses, and places for passionate gestures and charming one-on-one get-togethers during a romantic stay. Here is a mini guide of the essential activities in Brussels to include in your Brussels "To do list".

Romantic and relaxing walks in Brussels

These addresses will help you discover the Belgian capital and all its aspects.

If you are seduced by the idea of cuddling your love with the capital at your feet, climb the roof of the Albert I Royal Library. Located on the Mont des Arts, this magnificent building has, in addition to a collection of remarkable books and splendid gardens, a panoramic terrace in which you can get a fresh drink while contemplating the city.

Love at first sight between two people is as much a question of chemistry as it is of brain attraction, according to the researchers who have studied this subject. To prove them right, visit the Atomium, which is splendid both day and night. Discover the permanent and temporary exhibitions, have a drink and take very nice pictures in this museum, which is among the top museums in Brussels. After immersing yourself in this giant crystal, flatter your romantic side by going to the Cinquantenaire Park.

A museum that will make your heart beat faster!

The Musée du Cœur is undoubtedly the most romantic museum in Brussels. Located in the Cinquantenaire Park, it contains 500 objects collected by Dr. Boyadjian. This cardiologist, passionate about his profession, built up this incredible and unusual collection around the symbolism of the heart. Religious objects, paintings and jewellery are gathered in this place which has a poetic atmosphere. A must-visit to share with the one you love during your romantic weekend in Brussels

Restaurants and bars for a romantic date in Brussels

If you want to have a drink or a romantic dinner in an intimate setting, Brussels is a real goldmine of places where the two of you can sit down and have a good time. The small, intimate tables of restaurant A l'Ombre de la Ville or the charm of the Bistrot Madame and its cosy setting will fill you with romance.

For a drink, sneak up to the impasse de Rollebeek where a pleasant bar with a jazzy and warm atmosphere is nestled. Comfortably seated on a sofa in the Vertigo, you will enjoy a cocktail in a cosy setting of what was the oldest inn in the city, its opening dating back to 1587. To end the evening, Le Murmure Café is sure to enchant you with its relaxed atmosphere and small concerts.  

Brussels is undoubtedly one of the best cities in Europe for walking with your partner, holding hands and enjoying the beauty of the city. Start at the Grand Place and move in any direction to enjoy the architecture and street art, as well as the typical beauty of the city.
