Brussels has everything you need when it comes to sport. If you are looking to let off steam regularly, there are plenty of sports clubs and courses in the city. If you are just here on a short visit, you’ll find the facilities you need while you’re in town.

Sports clubs

If you want to do sport regularly you should get in touch with one of Brussels’s sports clubs. There are a lot of sports you can do in Brussels: from kitesurfing to underwater hockey.

Just visiting?

If you are only in town for a couple of days but want to keep yourself in trim, Brussels has a lot of green spaces where you can do some jogging. You can also criss-cross the capital by bike. In summer explore Brussels by bike or on roller blades in the Roller Bike Parade. Alternatively, take a plunge at one of Brussels’ swimming pools or keep in shape at one of the City’s gyms.

There is a list of sports halls and swimming pools (NL) on the Flemish Community Commission’s website. Shop in Brussels also has a very convenient map. See Sports & Leisure in the Leisure section.
