Brussels Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The capital of Belgium and the European Union is more than just a political powerhouse — it is a historical city with lots of character and heritage. Quite different from its nearest neighbors, Paris and Amsterdam, it has plenty to explore, especially if you’re ready to scratch beneath the surface. Here are three travel suggestions for your trip:

  • Cinquantenaire Museum. Also known as Jubelpark after the public green area in which it is located, this is a unique cultural institution dedicated to keeping ethnographic objects from around the world. In addition to classical European civilizations, the museum also has specialized exhibits on Islamic culture, Polynesian art, and much more. The Cinquantenaire Museum is part of the Royal Museums of Art and History complex that operates cultural institutions around Brussels.
  • Parlamentarium. Located just a 15-minute walk from Cinquantenaire, this is the visitor’s center of the European Parliament. Interactive and available in all of the two dozen languages of the European Union, visiting here can be a surprisingly entertaining experience. Visit the museum’s official website to learn more about opening hours; entry is free.
  • Grand Place. If Brussels is the metaphorical heart of Europe, this mighty square is the heart of the city. Known as Grote Markt in Dutch, it is home to landmarks like the Brussels City Hall, King’s House (although no longer the residence of the Belgian monarchs, it is home to the City Museum), and about 40 other listed heritage buildings.

Terminals

Location

Services and facilities

You’ll find several cafés, bars, snack kiosks, restaurants, and a pub. For shopping, try one of the many stores and a duty-free outlet that’s available to passengers leaving the EU. There are also ATMs, baby changing rooms, a pharmacy, a hairdresser, and places of worship for different denominations. The luggage storage service is in the shopping area of Pier A. The airport is well-equipped for travelers with reduced mobility, and it also provides special assistance, but you should contact your airline at least 48 hours before you arrive if you’d like this service. You can find more information on the airport's official website.
