Brussels: Hiking - Walking
The Smallest World-City
Brussels surprisingly has some very good hiking and walking trails and is one of the best ways to get around Brussels (from a sight-seeing point of view) even in winter. Bring a street/metro map to plan your itinerary or simply wander around the Grand'Place area. Remember top attractions and streets often have both French and Dutch names. If you plan to hike in Brussels try the old canal embankments or the disused railway tracks or follow any number of trails in the Forest de Soignes. Be sure to wear good walking shoes, bring sunscreen and a hat, water bottles and insect repellent.
