Spring (March-May): Spring season is the most pleasant time to visit Brussels.

The city is relatively empty during the spring season as the summer crowds have not arrived yet.

Be sure to carry light woollens if you plan to visit Brussels during the spring season as the evenings and the nights can get very cold.
The best time to visit Brussels is during the summer season (June to August) as the climate is pleasant and the city is alive and thriving with activity. However, if you wish to avoid the inflated peak season prices and the crowded streets, consider visiting Brussels during the winter (November to February) or the spring season (March to May)
