The climate of Brussels (Belgium)
Brussels is the capital of Belgium and quite centrally located in the
country. This is where the European parliament is and it is also the
seat of the Belgian government. Brussels has many faces. On the one
side the residential charisma with stately buildings, the Royal
palace, long lanes and chic shopping streets. Haute couture
enthusiasts will find everything they want in the boutiques in the
little streets in the Louiza lane area. On the other side Brussels
offers a lot of charm in for example the pretty cobbled street called
the Rue des Bouchers and the many cafés and the lovely little shops in
the rue Dansaert/Dansaertstraat. Brussels offers something for
everyone. The museum of fine arts has beautiful exhibitions on a
regular basis. The Atomium can be visited and many beautiful buildings
designed by the architect Victor Horta can be admired. In short, a
metropolis well worth visiting. Brussels has a moderate sea climate.
Because of the central situation of the city it has an unpredictable
climate. Brussels gets about 1,400 hours of sunshine per year and
about 800 millimeters of rain falls here per year. Statistically,
rainfall is evenly spread out over the year. However, peaks can be
recorded. Sometimes the month of April just gets a few millimeters of
rain while in other years this spring month can be exceedingly wet.
The figures below are based on long term weather and climate records.
They are an average for Brussels.
More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
information for each month of the year:
