Horse-drawn carriage tours in Brussels
Searching for an interesting way to get around Brussels? You can’t see a thing in the metro, driving in the tiny cobblestone streets can be stressful and a hassle, and your feet are about to fall off from hours of walking? At the historic Grand-Place in Brussels, you can now hop in a spacious Victorian horse-drawn carriage to visit this beautiful capital in style!
A tour like no other
This is the first time horse-drawn carriage tours (calèches in French) have been offered at the Grand-Place, starting and ending at Rue Charles Buls to be exact. Atop a brand new carriage equipped with a protective covering in case of rain, a professional coach will escort you around the historic parts of downtown Brussels, including Place Agora, Rue du Marché aux Herbes, Rue de L’Etuve, Rue du Midi, and many more.
Each tour takes about 30 minutes and takes you through the traditionally pedestrian areas where you can see a lot of Brussels’ exceptional UNESCO heritage sites. The carriages are quite spacious, fitting up to 5 people. Pile in with your whole family, a group of friends, or as a part of a romantic date night out. This is an attraction that anyone and everyone can enjoy.
Tourists will be happy to know that these horse-drawn carriages are available 7 days a week, 365 days a year. There are even night time tours during the summer! The cost is 39€ per carriage, and no reservation is necessary. When you undoubtedly find yourself at the famous Grand-Place during your trip to Brussels, take advantage of this personal carriage escort while admiring the impressive architecture of the Brussels City Hall.
