Simply put, Brussels is a gay travel natural. The Belgian capital shines at those time-honored gay-beloved pastimes of shopping (especially in the trendy Dansaert area and along upscale Avenue Louise), dining (particularly in the realm of yummy national staples like mussels, fries and chocolate, and drinking (at the city’s scores of queer and friendly bars and brasseries).
In fact, this multicultural hub of the European Union has one of the continent’s liveliest and friendliest LGBT scenes, easily explored thanks to its heavy concentration in the central Saint-Jacques area. And since Brussels is within 200 miles of Paris, Amsterdam, London and Cologne, it’s a regular rendezvous point for an international crowd looking to get in on the fun, usually at prices those bigger cities can only dream of.
