Belgium Weather, climate and geography
Weather & climate
Best time to visit:
Belgium is a small country with little climatic variation, although the area around the Ardennes is more prone to continental weather than the area around Brussels, which conforms more to a temperate European climate. Throughout the country, warm weather can reasonably be expected from May to September and snow is likely during the winter months - temperatures, however, are rarely extreme. As elsewhere in Europe, the major historical sights draw particularly large crowds over summer. Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year.
Due to the aforementioned rainfall, waterproofs are advisable at all times of year. Otherwise, pack light clothing for summer and something warmer for winter months.
