By car

Brussels is at the heart of Belgium and Europe. The Brussels Capital Region is accessible by car or motorcycle, whether you are coming from Paris, Amsterdam, Düsseldorf or the coast.

Brussels is served by seven motorways:

  • A10 - E40 from the Belgian coast, Ostend or Ghent
  • A12 from Antwerp
  • A1 - E19 from Antwerp or the Netherlands
  • A201 from Brussels Airport (Zaventem)
  • A3 - E40 from Leuven or Liège
  • A4 - E411 from Namur or Luxembourg
  • A7 - E19 from Mons, Charleroi and France (Paris)

Good to know

On Belgian motorways, there are no tolls. In general, the following speed limits apply:

  • 120 km/h on the motorway
  • 90 km/h on four-lane roads
  • and, since Jan. 1, 2021, 30 km/h over the entire territory of the Brussels Region, with some exceptions.

Avoid traffic jams, air pollution, parking problems and stress by leaving your car in a parking lot on the outskirts of the Brussels Region and traveling from there by train, metro, tram or bus. Also remember that the entire Brussels region is a low-emission zone: so the most polluting vehicles don't get in.
