Winter in Brussels for kids

When winter rears its chilly head, Brussels opens its arms wide to you so that you can experience exciting family adventures with your little poppets well sheltered from the bad weather
Off we go!

You can run along to the Atomium for its sparkling spheres and its uninterrupted view of the city. You can give yourself the shivers with the Monkeys exhibition and measure your height against the dinosaurs in the Art Nouveau fortress of the Museum of natural sciences. You can meet talking hats at the Magritte Museum. You can set off in a van that thinks it’s a submarine to discover all the different sides of Belgium and you can dress up as the Prime Minister at the Musée Belvue. You can enjoy a magical interlude and explore games and fun at the Chidlren’s Museum. You can plumb the depths of Brussels at the Sewer Museum. You can experience the adventure of life-size trains in an magical former railway station at Train World.

You can take advantage of the Winterwonders that light up the heart of the city with an ice rink and a big wheel, a Christmas tree and a living Nativity scene, magic roundabouts ... and breaks for tasty snacks: crispy chips, light waffles and hot chocolate.

Do you fancy experiencing Brussels art in a way that will take your breath away? Then pop along to the Bronks: the Dutch-speaking public youth theatre, which speaks all languages. Discover the bewitching setting and the secret corners of the Théâtre de la Montagne Magique… and end the winter in comfort at Anima: THE festival, which delights lovers of animated films aged from 7 to 77.
