Best Time To Visit Belgium
Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination
Just as the tourism tagline suggests, Belgium is a “place to be,” a place to be happy and totally astounded. Moreover, the best time to visit Belgium can be termed throughout the year since it hosts maritime climate. The land of wars enjoys a lovely maritime temperate climate for most of the year, which means one can visit it any time without much of a hassle. However, the winters are cold and summers are too crowded, which leaves the spring and autumn up for grabs. March to May and September to October are the best times of the year to visit Belgium – the romantic country, dotted with historical monuments.
Belgium Weather in March-May (10°C to 17°C)
This is the best time to visit Belgium without worrying about too much cold or too many people. The cold starts to fade slowly by late March and turns into a brilliant spring weather by the time April comes. Belgium being a small country, the temperature does not vary a lot over its entirety, which means the whole land enjoys warm sunshine all through the spring and summer. Temperatures remain pleasant and cities like Bruges and Ghent burst with colourful blossoms. Visiting Belgium in March-May also has the benefit of lower flight rates and hotel fares.
Belgium Weather in June-August (18°C to 25°C)
Belgium never gets unbearable heat even in the mean summers. Temperature stays moderate all over the country. This is the peak tourism period and also the best season to visit Belgium, which means there will be lots of people and high rates.
Belgium Weather in September-November (11°C to 19°C)
The Halloween-Thanksgiving season is not as crowded as the summer, but because of the holidays Belgium gets moderate footfall. Belgium in October is beautiful, covered with the red, orange and burgundy on the ground and a blue sky above. This is the best month to visit Belgium during the second half of the year. There is occasional rainfall and the chill of the winter starts setting in.
Belgium Weather in December-February (3°C to 7°C)
Winters in Belgium are pretty cold and occasionally wet. Mercury level stays low in the capital Brussels, but it gets even colder in the seaside regions. Sometimes the canals freeze over, and people ice skate on them as a fun winter activity. Ardennes gets enough snow for both cross-country and downhill skiing, but compared to some other European countries, winters here are pleasant.
Best Time to Visit Belgium for Festivals
There are many festivals during the summer to enjoy – the Ghent Festival in July, Brussels Summer Festival in August and the famous Tomorrowland Music Festival also in July.

Summer Season in Belgium
The warm season in Belgium is when all the fun outdoor activities are at their very best. There are multiple film and music and other festivals as mentioned earlier. Water activities in the beaches are also at large.
Monsoon Season in Belgium
There is no specific monsoon season in Belgium. The country gets scattered rainfall all around the year. Spring and autumn season gets quite a lot of rainfall, and winter as well – sometimes for days at a stretch. In fact, Belgium in November and December gets the most precipitation in a year.
Winter Season in Belgium
Before winter, the countryside turns into a stunning landscape in the colours of the fall and despite the showers, this is the best season to visit Belgium. After that, it starts getting chillier and wetter, with fewer outdoor activities. But the iconic Brussels Christmas Market makes up for it in every possible way, and so does the sparkling beauty of the cities.
